Ross Park Aquatic Complex Invites Residents to Walk the Lazy River


For years, the Lazy River has been the spot for rest and relaxation at the Ross Park Aquatic Complex. Now, it’s helping residents work up a sweat.

Earlier this month, the City opened the feature for hour-long resistance walking sessions. Walkers enter the river and then walk against the current, getting a workout. The exercise is best suited for individuals 16 and older who want to begin or add to their fitness routine.

“It may sound easy but it’s a challenge,” said Stacie VanKirk, Ross Park Aquatic Complex Manager. “Especially, if you try and go the entire hour.”

Lazy River Resistance Walking sessions will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. until August 17. The cost is $2 per session and walkers must exit the water immediately at 11 a.m. Walking is included for Ross Park Aquatic Complex season pass holders. Walkers are asked to enter at the front gate.
