The Town Center Community Alliance distributed the following press release:
KENNESAW, GA – Town Center Community is bringing back Yoga in Aviation Park this summer. Starting June 3, and continuing for the next five weeks, yoga in the park will take place every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. The free series, led by REI Co-op instructors, is open to the public and participants of all skill levels.
“This programming is an investment in our community and helps us fulfill our mission to invest in projects that enhance the quality of life in the Town Center area,” said Jennifer Hogan, director of community for Town Center CID. “It will give our community the opportunity to strengthen connections with each other and improve physical health and well-being.”
Weather permitting, each session is limited to 50 participants. Registration is required, and participants are encouraged to bring a yoga mat and water bottle. Parking is limited and carpooling is recommended.
Aviation Park, a three-acre property adjacent to the Cobb County International Airport runway, is an enterprise between the Town Center Community and Cobb County. The park was converted from under-utilized, vacant land to a themed environment for all ages. It lies midpoint along the Noonday Creek Trail and offers amenities such as a 60-space parking lot, open green space, STEM playground, airplane-shaped climbing structure, pavilion, water fountain and a restroom facility designed to replicate the nearby airport control tower.
“The park is an area for our community to come together, exercise, play and bond with neighbors while recognizing the rich aviation history in Cobb County,” added Hogan. “Our guests especially enjoy the greenspace to view aircraft take-offs and landings and the covered pavilion for picnicking.”
