La Porte, Indiana is paving the way to a healthier community this Spring with a brand new Fitness Court in Kesling Park! Through partnership with National Fitness Campaign and thanks to a generous donation from the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte, the city will officially activate their state-of-the-art outdoor gym facility in just a few weeks.

“I love going to the park, it’s always very clean, a very scenic walk and everyone you meet there is very pleasant,” a local resident stated. “I feel very comfortable at the park, it’s a great place to get your exercise in early in the morning.”

Kesling Park is a unique destination, filled with amenities for the whole family — alongside racquetball courts, fitness trails, soccer fields and tennis courts, the Fitness Court will be an outstanding addition for anyone wanting to have some fun outdoors with their family and friends.
