South Salt Lake Gets New Fitness Facility in Bickley Park


South Salt Lake has a new way for residents to boost their physical and mental health without joining a gym: the AARP-sponsored outdoor fitness park, organized by FitLot in Bickley Park, next to the Columbus Senior Center.

For free instruction on equipment use, email Aaron Wiet,, or call the Recreation Department (801-412-3217). 

Encouraging fitness is especially important now, says Mayor Cherie Wood, because “mental and physical health are a big challenge for many community members, and the pandemic made this especially acute.” 

AARP Utah Director Alan  Ormsby agrees. “Not only is exercise a key way to maintain that physical health, but it can also impact the ability to cope with stress,” he says.
