Senior Services is happy to announce that new accessible opportunities for fitness and recreation are available to the community starting August 15, 2022. Thanks to funds from the Strosacker Foundation, Friends of the Rail-Trail, and The Great Lakes Bay Invitational, an accessible pavilion, bike rack, and three-wheel bicycles will soon be available at the Senior Services main building at 4700 Dublin Avenue.
Conveniently located adjacent to the Rail Trail, these resources promise to provide a family friendly destination for all age ranges, income levels and physical abilities.
Use of the new, accessible, pavilion will be available at no charge. Please feel welcome to come and picnic with your family, or meet up before a walk or ride on the Rail Trail. We will not be requiring reservations at this time, but simply ask courtesy toward fellow users.
Bicycle reservations can only be made the week of desired use. Bike reservations for the week are available starting each Monday at 9:00 am. Weekend and evening hours are available, but all reservations must be made between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday through Friday by calling 989-633-3700. Each bike may be reserved for one 4-hour block per day. Available slots are 8 am-12 pm, 12 pm-4:00 pm, and 4 pm-8 pm. Users are required to provide phone number and email when reserving, to complete a waiver of liability before first use, and to return bike to the bike rack and re-lock it by the specified end time. Users who do not comply with these requests will not be allowed to check bikes out in the future. Once registered, users will be sent an email confirmation or handed a paper copy with bike lock code and additional instructions.
Senior Services is thrilled to work with excellent community partners to provide these new resources to individuals in the community in need of more stable options to traditional bikes and accessible outdoor gathering spaces.
