Parks can help encourage kids' fitness

Published: April 29, 2014 4:00 AM

As abiologyteacherwith over seven years of experience and an avid runner I see the value of supporting the Portage ParkDistrict. Opening more hiking and running trails will enable children to gain access to our valuable green space and, hopefully, help them develop a healthy mental and physical habit of observing nature as they exercise.The PortageParkDistrict provides affordable, fun, and healthy options for our children.

Ourparksare accessible to everyone year round. From biking to sledding, there is always something to do and see at theparks. I ask you to vote "Yes" on Issue 10 onMay 6.
