CHARLOTTE - The Carolina Panthers Play 60 Challenge Course at Hornets Nest Park is ready for action.
The unique play space was recently unveiled, created in partnership with GameTime, Cunningham Recreation and Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation.
"The best description we've come up with when conveying the concept of the play space is 'NFL Combine meets American Ninja Warrior'. GameTime has developed some really unique elements that kids will love," Panthers Director of Community Relations Riley Fields said. "The Carolina Panthers Play 60 Challenge Course will engage kids in creative and active ways while promoting the NFL's Play 60 initiative, which encourages kids to get 60 minutes of daily physical activity."
The course includes fun and interesting obstacles designed to develop speed, agility, balance and coordination in both children and adults. An automated timing device allows participants to time themselves through the course, which also featured a timed 40-yard dash.
