New exercise station at Marsh Park

Eyes on the L.A. River: I spotted some new exercise stations along the Los Angeles River at Marsh Park in Elysian Valley. Though both of these photos show the stations unused, I was happy to see them being tested out by a mother and her family taking a walk along the new river walk/bike path. Though they’re not listed on the website yet, they appear to be part of the Trust for Public Land’s Fitness Zone program that installs these types of exercise in parks in parks in L.A.’s densely-populated neighborhoods.

    I searched for workout stations along public trails in LA and found this article, then i searched for the stations on the greenway. There may only be two stations, but the one in the first picture in the article is extremely well-built, physically effective, and very efficient. Due to the solid contraction, you can work out quite a variety of upper body muscles in your upper body depending on how you position yourself. Top-notch bonus workout while using the trail.

    Thanks for the article….The fitness stations, landscaping, and new fence were installed by the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority as part of an Elysian Valley Bikeway improvement grant. EPT of Pasadena was the project designer.
