Connecting Communities Through Healthy Infrastructure

AMG is committed to helping its partners incorporate new technology to connect communities and create vibrant shared spaces through infrastructure elements and active mobility programs to promote healthy communities. On Saturday, September 7th, the City of Oakley, in partnership with the National Fitness Campaign, celebrated the opening of a new outdoor fitness court, which elevates the broader vision of Oakley to provide additional recreational opportunities. The new outdoor fitness court is conveniently located adjacent to the Delta DeAnza trail so the public is encouraged to use active modes of mobility to access the court. Under the leadership of Mayor Claire Alaura, Councilmember Kevin Romick, City staff, and other partners who value healthy infrastructure such as, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, the GoMentum Station and Bay Cities Paving, the City of Oakley has taken this opportunity to be a leader in healthy city initiatives.

The Oakley Fitness Court is part of a nationwide effort launched by National Fitness Campaign, who teams up with local ambassadors to connect their community to free activities and experiences that encourage a healthy lifestyle. The Fitness Court is free to the public, suitable for ages 14 and over, and appropriate for all fitness levels. Oakley residents enjoyed fitness lessons by local ambassadors, one of whom is Mayor Claire Alaura. The City is also considering a schedule of regular classes in the future.
