Outdoors Fun

Discovery Green's Fitness in the Park, Series Is Back

Take a yoga class, do a HIIT workout, or get zen with Tai Chi.

By Geneva Diaz January 10, 2022

HIIT by Fix Mix, is an exercise class offering at Discovery Green.

The in-person fitness series at Discovery Green is back. While Houston is known for its warmer climate, the month of January is our coldest, bringing breezy and cooler days, making it the perfect time for outdoors fun and activities. The action-packed series includes a few free and recurring fitness events, as well as Clutch City Wednesdays on Ice and Pixar Putt. Both of those can be a great date-night opportunity, or fun with the family. 

Since Houston is currently under a severe threat level due to the Omicron variant, don’t forget to check with Discovery Green at (713) 400-7336, before heading out to ensure these events are not cancelled. 

Here is a full list of activities that will get your heart pumping during these early winter weeks, and all are happening at Discovery Green this month:
