Active Living in...
Communities can make active living easier and more inviting. We encourage infrastructure changes such as adding way-finding signs, bike racks, bike lanes, wider shoulders and other improvements. We also encourage support for making walking easier by adding sidewalks, especially if they connect playgrounds, parks or other amenities.

- Enhancing Active Living
In the summer of 2016, the City of Winona received a SHIP mini-grant to support active living and bicycle infrastructure in our community. A Bike Fixtation stand was installed at the foot of the popular Holzinger Trails System.
This project contributes to the growing active living movement by providing citizens and guests in our community with the ability to address simple DIY (do it yourself) bike repair. The City of Winona Park and Recreation Department has taken ownership of the station, by committing to keep up its maintenance and promote this free new resource.
