1. Walk/Run/Bike- Summer is a great time to get outside and be more physically active. Here in Warsaw/Winona Lake we are very fortunate to have a great set of walking/bike trails. Here is an address to the website if you need a map or information about the paths. http://ridewalk.com/
We have 5.67 miles of greenways in Kosciusko County. This is a safe place to get out with your children and walk, run, or bike together. Don’t forget your helmet!
2. Play at the Park- Warsaw is full of fantastic parks for your children to play at this summer. Winona Lake now has the Limitless Park and K21 Splash Pad. The limitless park is a universally accessible park that has a solid surface, ramps, and sensory play. The Splash Pad is open 11am-6pm and is a great place for kids to cool off this summer. Center Lake has a great playground beach area. The beach at Center Lake is staffed with a life guard Memorial Day to Labor Day 10:30-6pm on weekdays, 11:30-pm on Sat and Sun. This a great place to cool off and get some exercise this summer. Make sure you wear that sunscreen and always swim with a buddy!
