From the Esplanade to the Greenway, from Franklin Park to Jamaica Pond, free fitness takes over this city in the summer. But lest you think the suburbs have been forgotten, just look to Legacy Place in Dedham.

Last week, the shopping center launched its summertime events series, which includes plenty of health and wellness programming. There’s a free fitness class every Thursday evening, as well as a smattering of other health events throughout the summer.
