Grant Park urges you to get fit for the Chinese New Year, for free!

Couple exercising in parkCheck out Grant Park’s winter events! Everything from free fitness classes to Chinese New Year’s celebrations are coming your way.

Grant Park is both a park and a neighborhood. The area is tucked away along quiet streets, under the boughs of mature trees in southwest Atlanta.  This is truly one of the most diverse areas in the city with residents of all ages, ethnicities, professions, and interests. Neighborhood leaders organize a range of events at the park that engage this unique group. There’s rarely a dull moment; don’t mistaking a quiet neighborhood for an inactive one.

Fitness

Everyone can get in shape, especially when the classes are fun and free! Try yoga with Alyson Laura on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30pm.

If Wednesdays don’t work, head to the community recreation center for free fitness classes each morning from 11am to noon. Participate according to your ability level.

Toss in a few bucks to enjoy GYROKINESIS® movement training, a blend of yoga and tai chi-style exercises. Classes are taught at Nirvana Yoga each Thursday from 4:30 – 5:30pm.

Festivals and Fares

Bring in the Chinese New Year on February 6, 2012 with Doc Chey’s. The restaurant will host a New Year’s party at their location on 563 Memorial Drive. There will be $2 Tsingtao beer, lunch and dinner specials. For each special sold, Doc Chey’s will donate $2 to the ACFB. They’ll also donate $1 for every nonperishable food item donated at the event.

Save the World

Trees Atlanta is back in the area, looking to plant more trees. Now and through the end of February the organization is taking suggestions for where the trees could be planted. In years past, Trees Atlanta has installed oaks, redbuds, hornbeams, tupelo, serviceberry, and of course, magnolias. Their actions are one reason why Grant Park is as beautiful as it is today! Make suggestions and volunteer to help.
