Settlers Bank Adult Exercise ParkSPSettlers

Welcome to Marietta’s newest park system attraction – the Settlers Bank Adult Exercise Park!

Senior/Adult playgrounds are growing rapidly in the U.S. This is a great addition in Marietta to alleviate some of the problems of both physical and mental wellness in a fun outdoor environment. 

The Settlers Bank Adult Park consists of nine steel outdoor pieces of non-adjustable equipment each containing signage instructions for use and muscles addressed.  In addition, the machines have multiple stations and can accommodate up to 19 users simultaneously.  Four stations offer wheelchair accessibility, and all vary in resistance to accommodate a variety of people with different abilities.

The park is located in the green space in the 500 block of Front Street so that residents can also enjoy the bike trail, river view, shade trees, and parking near the Washington Street Bridge. 

Efforts have been made to beautify the area with benches, picnic tables, flowers, river bank maintenance, and newly planted trees – all donated by organizations or individuals. 

You can feel comfortable using the new park as we have added lighting and signage to ensure proper usage. Marietta College also performs monthly maintenance to make certain that the equipment is in safe, working order.
