The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership announces the launch of free, fun fitness activities at parks and trails around the Atlanta BeltLine. Offered in cooperation with the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation, Park Pride and other health-centric organizations, the program is designed to engage the community in healthy, active lifestyles. Grant funding for the programs is provided through the Coca-Cola Company, awarded to the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership this year.
