Earlier this week, we stopped by to visit the City of Wyoming. This WeTHRIVE! community received our Community Wellness Mini-Grant in November 2011. Facilities Director Missy O’Brien, who heads up the Wyoming WeTHRIVE! team, showed us how the city used WeTHRIVE! funding to make it easier for residents to stay active. Take a look...
Along the Wyoming Hike/Bike Trail, you'll see new mileage markers and outdoor fitness equipment.
Think of the variety you can add to your walk or run by jumping on the rowing machine, seated chest press, cardio walker, seated leg press and total body row. These boys are trying out the leg press.
A newly published community resource guide connects residents with spaces and places where they can be active. Inside, you’ll find information about all the parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, preserves and recreation facilities in Wyoming.
Newcomers will really find this guide handy. But Missy says that even some long-time residents are surprised at all that Wyoming has to offer. The guide will soon be posted on the city’s website. You can also pick up a copy at the library, schools and other public facilities.
And while it's obvious that Wyoming is thriving, they have more plans for the future. Missy told us that “the WeTHRIVE! process opened our eyes to what the community has to offer and what we can do to make it even better.”
