Large-scale exercise classes on Workout Wednesdays, live concerts, a kid zone and more. The Summer of 2019 just got better at Rockford's riverfront.

The Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, fresh off some incredible NBA Champion Fred VanVleet celebrations, is now turning up the fun at one of my favorite spots in Rockford. The Davis Park event series runs until the end of August.

Over 50 people came to Davis Park on July 24th, for the first ever Workout Wednesday, part of the new, Summer at Davis Park event series.

Instructors from the YMCA led the group in a Les Mills BodyAttack workout. Great music and energy filled the beautiful riverfront park. The best news, they'll be back EVERY Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. It's also totally free and open to everyone. There's even a Kids Zone for ages 5-12 led by the Rockford Park District's Youth Sports Department.
