Communities across New Hampshire are working each and every day to become more livable for residents of all ages.
Groundbreaking.jpg
As part of a nationwide project, AARP New Hampshire worked with Manchester’s Parks and Recreation Department to open a fitness park in Derryfield Park. Over the next several years, AARP plans to sponsor a fitness park in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. FitLot, a national nonprofit, will construct over a dozen parks in 2019, which will include FitLotTM exercise equipment that can be adapted to meet a wide range of ages, fitness levels and abilities.

We know it takes time to build great communities. But, we also believe that quick action can spark longer-term progress. AARP launched the AARP Community Challenge to fund projects that build momentum for change in communities to improve livability for all local residents.
