Cheviot thrives with new ways to be healthy and stay active

Posted by Caroline Statkus on Saturday, July 28, 2012

The WeTHRIVE! Community Wellness Mini-Grant gave Cheviot the chance to explore community needs from a health and wellness perspective—something our city had never actively done before! We started our work back in November 2011. Look at all the new ways our residents can be healthy and stay active today…

Outdoor fitness station at Harvest Home Park in Cheviot

Cheviot WALKS! New signs mark 1-mile and 1.5-mile walking routes around town. Take the 1.5-mile route through Harvest Home Park, where you can pump up your workout on six new outdoor fitness stations.

Hop, skip, jump & swing in Harvest Home Park, where hopscotch and four other games will soon be striped on the former basketball court. Watch for kids using the new handicapped-accessible swing on the playground.

An afternoon of volleyball: Game Time Sports Bar & Grill has agreed to open its new sand volleyball court to the public at no charge on Saturdays from 2:00pm until 8:00pm.

Eat well: Thanks to WeTHRIVE! funding, new signage and insulated shopping bags promote the weekly Lettuce Eat Well Farmers’ Market in Harvest Home Park (Fridays, 3-7pm). 

St. Martin of Tours community garden

Sharing the harvest: A new community garden at St. Martin of Tours Church will supply St. Vincent de Paul’s food pantry with fresh seasonal produce. St. Martin School students will maintain the garden with help from parishioners.
