Berkley Riverfront Fitness Court

October 15, 2018

Berkley Riverfront, owned by the Port of KC, is a place for community, activity, entertainment and relaxation within an urban landscape. It is a one-of-a-kind space filled with cultural and recreational amenities.

A fitness court was added on the eastern end next to the sand volleyball courts, enabling users to enjoy an outdoor workout with a fantastic view of both the Missouri River and the Kansas City skyline.

Fitness Court Equipment

ABcreative chose equipment focused on bodyweight exercises, was scalable to fitness and skill levels and included a wheelchair accessible machine. We created QR code stickers that link to video guides for suggested exercises, including pull-ups, dips, leg raises and more. Equipment included:

  • Adjustable Ab Bench
  • Adjustable Dip Station
  • Adjustable Step
  • Battle Ropes
  • Y-Extender Feature with Rings
  • Center Post Platform & Rings
  • Climbing Rope
  • Elite Parallel Bars
  • Ergo Grip Handle Pull-up Bar
  • Medicine Ball Target
  • Monkey Bar Bridge
  • Plyo step Stations
  • Push Up & Inverted Row Bars

The equipment – from Movestrong and Greenfields – is specifically designed to weather outdoor conditions and allow for year-round functional fitness and bodyweight exercising.

Artificial Turf, the Final Touch

We brought in ForeverLawn Kansas City to install Playground Grass Extreme in the fitness court.

The fitness court at Berkley Riverfront is great. I’ve been using the equipment three times a week since it opened. I really like the soft pad under the turf for doing box jumps and the turf is great after it rains; when everything else is muddy, the turf isn’t. There’s nothing I don’t like about this fitness area.
