When was the last time you tried something new? With beautiful weather comes the return of Fresh Air: Fremont Park, a series of free health and wellness activities, aimed at encouraging an active and mindful lifestyle, which is critical to the health of our community.
This year’s activities include Pilates, Yoga, Bootcamp, and Open-Air Coworking to activate Fremont Park every weekday. Workouts are open to all ages and fitness levels! Review the weekly/monthly class schedule below. No registration is necessary. Check out the class description before you go to determine if you need to bring any exercise materials, like a yoga mat.
About Fremont Park
Fremont Park features a kids’ play area, detailed art sculptures, and ample space to recreate under large shady trees. The park is home to everything from concerts, chalk festivals, lightsaber battles, artisan markets, movie nights, and chess matches. Surrounded by locally-owned restaurants, coffee shops, and high-density and high-end apartment buildings, with a light rail station to boot, Fremont Park is one of the 10 original parcels in the City of Sacramento, which continues to serve the public. Fremont Park has gone through multiple updates through the support of a committed ‘Friends of Fremont Park’ group and Midtown Parks.
Midtown Parks recently wrapped eight electrical pedestals in Fremont Park with art, in an effort to beautify and activate parks within the district. The pedestals were recently added as part of the city of Sacramento’s electrical upgrades to the park. Midtown Parks worked with local artist Melissa Uroff, who employed her unique combination of photography and paint to create the digital artwork for these wraps. The dynamic designs feature local female leaders from Sacramento whose children play at Fremont Park.
Area Dining and Shopping
Fremont Park is surrounded by restaurants, entertainment, and multifamily housing. For excellent apartment options in the area, check out Legado de Ravel 16 Powerhouse and 1430Q. For excellent retail, check out the nearby Ice Blocks.
Dining options immediately facing the park are plentiful. Favorites include Mochinut Midtown which is the happy union between Japanese rice cake (mochi) and American-style doughnuts, Magpie Café for incredible farm-to-fork fare, and Temple Coffee.
Fremont Park provides a green space in the densely populated yet easy-to-navigate central grid. Transportation options include hourly street parking, SacRT bus & light rail, rideshare, as well as walking and biking. Fremont Park is within 1/4 mile from the 16th Street Light Rail Station.
