Updated: Aug 17, 2023

Presented by The Dawn S. Chaney Foundation

Greensboro Downtown Parks play a pivotal role in supporting our community's mental and physical health. Our parks and our programs promote balanced lifestyles, self-care and connectivity. We host 60+ free fitness and wellness programs annually and help improve Greensboro's health equity by maintaining key publicly-accessible greenspaces for physical activity. LeBauer and Center City Parks are truly the heart of downtown providing essential space for social gatherings, race events and even a little summertime splashing. Health and Wellness programs run weekly throughout the parks' busy season. From Pilates to aerobics, we offer a range of classes for all ages, fitness levels and interests.
