Along with the new public art installations in Huntsville comes a new way to work out all together!

The Fitness Courts are ground-breaking free outdoor bodyweight circuit training centers designed for all ages and fitness levels. There are seven zones that focus on seven movements: core, squat, push, lunge, pull, agility and bend.

And thanks to the art, it stimulates your creativity and broadens your horizons with original works of art as well.

In fact, two of the public art installations in Huntsville will feature limited edition artwork by late renowned artists Jean-Michael Basquiat and Keith Haring. The other two parks will spotlight the work of local artists.


Wondering when and where all this is happening? For starters, Huntsville’s first Fitness Court at John Hunt Park is expected to be installed by this fall. It will feature artwork by Haring.

Next up, work will begin on the court designed for Legacy Park followed quickly by Apollo Park, which will showcase Basquiat’s art. Both of those installations should be complete by the end of the year.

The final and fourth park, California Street Park, won’t see any action until 2023.

Meanwhile, if you are interested in submitting your artwork for consideration for Legacy Park and California Street Park, visit for updates.
