Fitness Court Ambassador Program
Become a Fitness Court Ambassador! Parks and Recreation is recruiting fitness court ambassadors to help instruct community members how to properly use the equipment in the Fitness Court located at Pelona Vista Park in Palmdale. There is a required 30-minute webinar as part of the training.
The Fitness Court is made possible through funds from presenting sponsor Antelope Valley Medical Center, High Desert Medical Group, The Kaiser Foundation, and an NFC fitness grant from official music sponsor, Fit Radio.
