Providing an integrated array of wet and dry services, spaces and programs, we intend to offer three levels of valued participation:  some no-fee (most likely use of the indoor walking/running track), some fee-based and some memebership-based.  Our goal is to create a place where all can gather and enjoy many kinds of activities together


Our approach has been to assess community needs, develop programs to meet those needs, create a design to accommodate the programming and secure a site that will work for the design.

Securing multiple partners will provide many points of entry and grassroots input will help us ground our plans.  Collaboration will be our greatest asset.  As we move forward, we will craft plans to right-size the facility for our community and available resources to create a sound business plan that provides for long-term success and sustainability.

Did you know ...

Many school-age children in Benzie County can't swim 25 yards to sve their own life or the life of a friend.  Drowning is the #1 cause of death for children under the age of 5 and the 2nd leading cause of injury=realted death for children under 15 years old.

Obesity is on the rise in Benzie County.  One-third of its residents are obese and another third are overweight.

As Benzie County looks to attract year-round residents, a variety of recreation amenities that appeal to all ages will enhance its economic competitiveness.

The best guarantee of a long and healthy life is connecting with other people.  Social isolation has negative impacts on health comparable to high blood pressure, obesity, lack of exerse and/or smoking.
