Universities Fitness Park Tallahassee’s push for a healthier community

Healthy Living for young Adults:

Healthy Living for young Adults The City of Tallahassee can promote positive life choices by encouraging the young adults of the Tallahassee community living around the universities’ areas to live healthy lifestyles in their road to achieving success. Tallahassee holds great opportunity for its residents and future residents, whether you are a student looking to achieve a degree from one of the highly recognized universities or a recent graduate proudly employed by the state government of Florida in an effort to make a change. These pull factors draw in a crowd of young adults on the path to creating a success of themselves. Young adults are continuously working hard and under great stress , and success cannot be achieved without living a healthy lifestyle. What the city lacks is a public amenity that promotes healthy living as these students walk the path to become the future leaders in our community, Florida, and our nation.

Stressing the importance for healthy living to young adults helps pave the way for future leaders in our communities. Tallahassee has grown in population by almost 5% since the 2000 census and now has a population of nearly 190,000. Young adults make up almost a third of Tallahassee’s residents and college students account for a majority of that percent. The number of young adults brought in by the local universities boasts a great opportunity for the city of Tallahassee to create a positive influence on their community by promoting healthy living with the implementation of the proposed Universities Fitness Park.

Overview: Universities Fitness Park:

Overview: Universities Fitness Park Location of Park The southeast corner of the intersection at Stadium Drive, Lake Bradford Drive, and Gaines Street is an area of heavy foot and automobile traffic , but sits in a prime location near the campuses of FSU, FAMU, and TCC. The central location to the three universities, the redeveloped Madison and Gaines Streets, and close proximity to the FSU Recreation Fields make this location ideal. The project will redevelop land that holds a vacated warehouse and a large amount of open land into a place that promotes healthy lifestyles for students and residents of the area. Universities Fitness Park The Universities Fitness Park project is designed to promote the redevelopment of the areas surrounding the three campuses and provide students and residents in these areas a park dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle.
