The District Institute of Recreation and Sports (Idrd) launched the night gyms, which will be in 30 city parks.
The entity’s idea is to promote healthy lifestyle habits, encourage physical activity and mental health. In addition, this initiative is intended to ensure that more citizens take ownership of the parks and these become safe spaces for the community.
“With the enabling of night gyms we are bringing health to people through physical activity and sports, with our Healthy Active Communities program. The best of all is that users will be accompanied by instructors, they will practice in the open air and at no cost ”, assured Blanca Durán, director of IDRD.
