Exercise is an important part of our daily lives. It is what keeps us in good health, helps us get things done, and makes us feel better on a bad day. Finding the right place to exercise can be hard if you don’t know where to look. There are a lot of options with different features that make a big difference. The key is to know what’s available and what you need to be happy there. If you are looking for somewhere new to workout, then get some exercise at these three places in Denton.
Water Works Park & Natatorium
One of the best scenic places to work out in Denton is Water Works Park & Natatorium at 2700 Long Rd. Admission requires a pass, and you can get a discount by getting a season pass. It is filled with amenities that will give you a water workout along with a lot of fun. If you’ve ever been to a water park and had to climb the stairs to the top of a waterslide, then you know how much of a workout that can be. If you need to take a break or want a bit of water resistance training, there is a lazy river that you can tube or walk in. If you have diet restrictions or you are on a healthy eating kick, then you can bring your own meal.
South Lakes Park
South Lakes Park at 556 Hobson Ln. is relatively large and has plenty of space for activities like fishing or picnicking. The park was renovated earlier this year to refurbish several of the amenities. The park also includes the Eureka 2 Playground which is well-designed and maintained to keep children busy and active. Your kids will be able to run around for hours without running out of things to do on the playground. There are also designated areas for basketball, baseball, and other sports.
North Lakes Park
At 2001 W Windsor Dr., you can find North Lakes Park, which is part of the city’s parks and recreation network. This well-maintained park has a wide range of plants throughout. Combined with waterways, grassy areas, and hiking paths, North Lakes Park is the perfect place for working out with holistic methods like yoga or Tai Chi. Children can choose from several playgrounds. Biking is allowed, and there is plenty of room to ride. The park is usually frequented by runners early in the morning and after work, so you could easily find a running group to help bolster your motivation.
With so many cool places to work out, you are going to need a good vehicle to get there. Huffines Kia of Denton can help you find the right vehicle to get where you want to go. Kia has a variety of vehicles that are great for transporting sports equipment and making the trip to your favorite workout spot enjoyable. Ask your Kia dealer how a new vehicle can not only help you get to your workout spot, but to also motivate you to drive there every day with features that make driving exciting.
