2018 Campaign Logo Seymour.png

Downtown Seymour’s beautiful new Crossroads Park is the latest Indiana home of the Fitness Court! Now residents can enjoy the “small towns, historic tracks” heart of the community, while getting a best-in-class outdoor exercise experience. With a rich history and a modern, unique town charm, the City of Seymour really does offer something for everyone!

Fitness is a priority in Seymour, and the project came to life thanks to the hard work of dedicated city staff and the generosity of community sponsors. Championed by Park Director Bob Tabeling, this project attracted the partnership of the Schneck Hospital Foundation, Seymour Rotary Club and Healthy Jackson County — working together to make the healthy choice an easy choice in their city.
