Give Your Kids the Run Around

Asphalt Green Heads Downtown

asphalt green new york!

Try as you might, your kids may prefer cookies to quinoa. But downtown moms will soon have a new ally in Operation Healthy Family.

Asphalt Green, a fitness-focused nonprofit that operates an enormous uptown sports complex, opens a second location in Battery Park City this winter. The new facility has two pools, an extensive fitness center, a full-size gymnasium, and a culinary center with classes and events geared toward teaching healthy eating habits.

Sign tots up for a range of classes, including swimming, gymnastics, soccer, basketball, and dance. Plus, for a limited time they’re offering discounted charter memberships. So you can take advantage of the members-only on-site babysitting while you hit the elliptical and steam room.

Run with it.

Asphalt Green Battery Park City, 212 North End Avenue, at Murray Street (212-298-2980 or asphaltgreenbpc.org).
