Bensenville, Ill.— The Bensenville Park District is launching the new Breiter-Palm Wellness Circuits program, a monthly fitness and wellness activity designed to promote overall well-being and provide participants with a unique and immersive experience. These sessions will take place from 9 to 10:30 a.m. on Mondays, June 5, July 3 and August 7, at Breiter-Palm Park, located just south of Memorial on Church Road in Bensenville.

Breiter-Palm Wellness Circuits are tailored to individuals aged 14 and above, aiming to enhance both physical fitness and mental well-being.
