The Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces department is joining health partner Fitness and Wellness Works to offer three new exercise classes, free of charge, for residents ages 55-plus, as part of Miami-Dade Parks Active Older Adults program.

Yoga, Tai Chi and Zumba Gold classes are available at nine Miami-Dade Parks Active Older Adults Recreation Centers, located countywide. Participants are required to pre-register for classes at one of the participating park centers. Class days and times are subject to change.

Please contact the Centers directly for updates.

Miami-Dade Parks is committed to helping older adults in the county stay heart-healthy and engaged in their community. Through its Active Older Adults program, residents age 55 and older are learning about healthy eating, exercising and enjoying nature in beautiful park spaces, improving their physical strength and expanding their social circles. Started in 2013, the program offers numerous fee-free recreational opportunities at park locations county-wide.
