Slideshow: Grizzlies Riverfront Fitness Trail and Pop-Up Park

Posted By on Fri, Aug 8, 2014 at 1:26 PM

Tom Lee Park is getting a fitness makeover in September.

That's when the Memphis Grizzlies will install the pieces of the Grizzlies Riverfront Fitness Trail and Pop-Up Park, what they call "an experiential pilot for the best in urban fitness and recreation." They call it RiverFIT for short.

For three months the Downtown park will have two volleyball courts, a lined soccer field, and six fixed workout stations - monkey bars, pull-up bars, abdominal benches, plyometric boxes, battle ropes and an obstacle course.
