The Albert-Oakland fitness circuit promotes a healthy lifestyle while making fitness fun and accessible to all people, regardless of their economic situation or physical ability. The trail is also excellent for walking, jogging and the enjoyment of the park’s natural environment. In the southwest area of the park, known at C. M. Albert Memorial Park, you can gain access to the Bear Creek Trail. Entrances to Albert-Oakland Park are located off Blue Ridge Rd. and Edris Dr. (off of Oakland Gravel Rd.). Access to C. M. Memorial Park is at the terminus of Parker St. on the south side of the park.
