You don’t have to join a gym to get in shape.

Friday during the FOX8 8:00 Morning News, Lee Tillery from the High Point Parks & Recreation Department will join us to talk about taking advantage of local parks and recreation facilities.

Local parks offer hiking trails, paddle boats, tennis courts and basketball courts, and most are available for free or for a small fee.

Check out www.highpointnc.gov/pr/ to learn what’s available, or check with the Parks and Recreation Department in your city.
