MI Free Pass to a Healthier Mind, Body and Spirit
MI Big Green Gym offers free park passes for Michigan fitness seekers
For anyone wanting to get fit this summer, but find their budget is the leanest part of their lifestyle, a quick trip to the Bloomfield Township Public Library for a free pass into MI Big Green Gym is the first step to getting started.
MI Big Green Gym is a partnership with Michigan Recreation and Park Association, the Department of Natural Resources, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. It is designed to show just how easy it is to get out, get active and get healthier. Lucky for Michigan residents, MI Big Green Gym is as close as their nearest state park or community recreation center – and is now available for free thanks to more than 400 community libraries participating in the program, including the Bloomfield Township Public Library.
Passes allow one vehicle into a state park for one day, and with many parks offering free programs with all the gear and expertise provided.
Passes are valid for seven days from check-out and can be used for day-use only, not for use at prearranged/multiple person private gatherings, or overnight camping. The program is available June 1 to October 1.
