Asphalt Green Battery Park City Opening; Register for Summer Camp and Classes!
It's been a long time coming (I know, I'm sorry, I first promised you it would open in the winter of 2011!), but the sports and fitness complex Asphalt Green is really, truly about to open its state-of-the-art facility in Battery Park City. In fact, the lobby's already open, and you can right now register for all summer camps, classes and teams, as well as fall classes and sports leagues.
Like the original version on the Upper East Side, the BPC Asphalt Green offers an almost-overwhelming array of activities, so I suggest you take a look at their website and catalog, and/or talk to one of the many helpful reps in the lobby, in order to take full advantage of this awesome new neighborhood resource. Here, though, are some highlights:
BPC's Asphalt Green Summer Day Camp
For more than 25 years the Asphalt Green crew have been running a first-rate day camp on the Upper East Side, so the new one opening in Battery Park is pretty much guaranteed to be great. Running from June 27 to August 16 (in a variety of options, number-of-weeks-wise) for ages 4 to 13, the camp offers everything you want for your kids: well-organized sports, swimming lessons and activities, "cultural arts" (dance, music, visual arts), and cool field trips. An enviable camper-counselor ratio plus that spanking-new facility only adds to the appeal.
Asphalt Green Battery Park City Fitness Activities
Asphalt Green has fun, fitness-y things to do for all ages, infants through adults, and for all levels of skill and intensity. Swim classes and competitive teams. Soccer, basketball, baseball, martial arts, and volleyball. Triathlon training, pilates, "circus arts", zumba, spinning, yoga, cardio sculpt. Plus: youth, adult, and family culinary and cultural arts classes. And that's just a top-line look at everything going on here. For complete schedules and descriptions, see here.
The Asphalt Green Battery Park City Facility
The Asphalt Green Battery Park City facility is located on North End Avenue right next door to Glenwood's Tribeca Bridge Tower residence near Murray Street. The lobby is now open for registration weekdays from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m., and on weekends from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The facility itself will open on June 15. Lots of information about everything can be found here.
