How to Participate Safely

What to expect

  1. If you’ve been feeling well, arrive at the park with your own water bottle.
  2. Check-in with a customer service representative who will have an iPad to sign you in. All participants are required to have signed a COVID-19 waiver before participating.
    Please note: Our system requires that customers provide the CVV number associated with their card on file at every transaction. No cash will be accepted.
  3. Head to a marked spot, which will be spaced six feet apart to allow for physical distancing throughout the duration of the workout. Classes will be limited to 20 participants.
  4. HAVE FUN!

Additional Safety Measures

Participants will all read, approve, and sign a waiver attached to their Portland Parks & Recreation registration account. PP&R will use electronic rosters from the daily check-in for contract tracing in case of illness.

Face coverings are no longer required outdoors for visitors at Portland Parks & Recreation facilities. Employees, vendors, and volunteers will continue to wear face coverings outdoors.

Class participation is limited to 20 on a first-come, first-serve basis. Participants will be required to stay within their marked section throughout the duration of the workout. Markers are spaced 6’ apart to allow for physical distancing.

Restrooms may not be available depending on location. Multnomah Arts Center does not have public restroom access at this time.

Participants should bring their own yoga mats or towels, as there are sometimes elements of nature around Fitness in the Park classes. In some cases, participants may want to double up on mats or towels, depending on their own comfort. 

Participants should bring filled water bottles, hand weights, and resistance bands if needed. 

Two people wearing face coverings are lying on mats in the grass and practicing a yoga pose by lifting their legs.

Our community’s parks system provides our neighbors with many opportunities to improve their mental and physical health during this public health emergency. Fitness in the Park is a creative way to continue supporting Portlanders' health and keep you connected with PP&R while following the guidance of public health officials.
