Don’t let the winter blues keep you from staying active during these chilly months of winter!  We have some great ideas and activities to keep you moving all winter. 
Sledding Hill at Mission Creek Park
This 60-acre park is located on the northwest side of town. This park brings you back to nature, with picturesque scenery that can be enjoyed from the nature trails, which wind through hard woods. The park features two open-air shelters, nature trails, and of course the best sledding hill in town.  So grab a sled and hit the snow and see how fast you can go!


I.C.E. Arena
The Isabella County Ice Arena offers public skating times three days a week throughout the winter. Wednesdays the arena is open 3:30-5pm and they feature the $2 days; $2 admission and $2 rentals.  Or skate your day away on the weekend; open skate on Fridays and Saturdays is 6-8pm. You can also go cheer on a team at a game.
Try out the A-Wall Indoor Rock Climbing Wall on the campus of Central Michigan University. This isn’t just for students! The 32-foot climbing wall offers opportunities for individuals and groups to promote fitness, self-esteem and develop leadership skills.

This is a great way to spend a cold winter day indoors. Call 989-774-7307for more information or to make a reservation.
