Health and Wellness Pillar

Some examples of WPRF initiatives:

  • Youth activity initiatives were implemented through our Cool School 5k, Before School Fit Kid, Kiddie-Klassic Bike Race, Trailbreaker 5k and preschool tumbling. These programs enhance flexibility, strength, endurance and overall health and wellness
  • In progress - paving and improvements to a former railway corridor (one mile plus) to serve as an important recreation connector trail
  • Our preschool program, older adults, Boy Scouts, Park Foundation and Easter Seals collaborated to construct/implement a community raised garden.  The garden is used to promote healthy eating by growing nutritious food.  In addition, it is used in the preschool curriculum to learn about food preparation

  • Under-utilized tennis courts (4) have been repurposed into 8 heavily used pickleball courts to address the increased interest in the sport. Our courts have become the premier destination for pickleball players in the area looking to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle
