Welcome The Fitness Court to Hoover

The Fitness Court opens this week with a goal of expanding free access to high quality workouts and creating equitable access to exercise in the community. Residents are welcome to come out and try out the new facility at the ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday.

“One of Hoover’s greatest assets is the quality of life we offer. From our nationally-awarded library to our high ranking school system, Hoover is a wonderful city in which to live, work and play. This new Fitness Court will only add to the myriad of recreational opportunities we can offer our residents and visitors.

We all know that quality of life leads to longevity of life and to offer this option as a part of that equation is exciting.”

Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato
