Fessenden Park is bounded by Wisconsin Avenue, Fessenden St., and 42nd St. The park is equidistance from either the Tenleytown-AU Metro station or the Friendship Heights station, and is located on multiple Metro Bus lines. A Capital Bikeshare station is located at Fessenden Street and Wisconsin Avenue, next to Citibank. Metered street parking is also available.

In the case of rain, the class will be canceled. Registrants will receive credit for a future Get Fit at Fessenden class at the park.
