A Message to the FitLot Community re: COVID-19


Strengthening communities is at the core of FitLot’s mission, and the health and safety of park users is our central concern during the current pandemic. We are collaborating actively with our city partners to ensure safe use of all FitLot outdoor fitness parks across America. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), “Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy.” We wholeheartedly agree! Despite the challenges of the last several months, we remain committed to helping plan, build, and program outdoor fitness parks so everyone can enjoy the benefits of a more active lifestyle. 


Can I visit my local FitLot fitness park while physical distancing restrictions are in place? 

Check with your local city government for timely information relative to local restrictions and other civil safety measures. Several major cities still have physical distancing restrictions, requirements to wear face coverings, and additional recommendations. Please follow the guidance provided.

Can I use my FitLot fitness park safely? 

First and foremost, we encourage you to review and follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding protecting yourself from COVID-19, as recommendations may change as more is learned about the virus.

Taking the proper precautions when making contact with shared surfaces in your public park can help you stay safe. Here are recommended steps for cleaning fitness park equipment from our equipment partner Landscape Structures:

  • Use a non-bleach disinfectant for best compatibility with equipment materials
  • Focus on high-touch areas such as hand grips, bars and benches.
  • Always follow the cleaning product’s label instructions to achieve effective results
