Join Aquidneck Land Trust (“ALT”) and the Newport County YMCA for free fitness classes in scenic Miantonomi Park every Sunday in August! This historic, 30-acre park features large, undisturbed woodlands in the densely developed North End of Newport. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to socialize with friends and neighbors, and to engage in some free physical activity in the fresh air. The 45-minute classes will be led by a certified fitness professional from the Newport County YMCA. All ages and abilities are welcome!

Fitness in the Park is part of the Miantonomi Exploration Days, brought to you by the Newport Open Space Partnership. After the class, climb the spiral staircase of Miantonomi Memorial Tower and explore the park’s network of beautiful trails – all conserved permanently by ALT.

Fitness in the Park is made possible by a grant from the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund at Newport Hospital. Join us for a workout that’s “Powered by Prince!” For more information, visit the ALT website at

No reservations required. Classes will be held on sunny Sundays in August, weather permitting. Any cancellation notices will be posted on the ALT and Newport County YMCA Facebook pages. Miantonomi Park is located on Hillside Avenue in Newport. Enter the park on the Hillside Avenue side and look for the “Fitness in the Park” signs.
