Plymouth Mayor’s Minutes: Staying Active, Having Fun during Winter
Plymouth Mayor Jeff Wosje is a runner and is happy to share ideas about where to run when the weather gets cold. He advises runners to consider checking out the Plymouth Community Center’s fieldhouse dome.
“I always like to promote that we have the outside running track available for runners and walkers,” said Wosje. “We also have that big, open indoor field in the dome whether you are playing youth soccer, lacrosse or different youth or adults who have activities going in there.
There are also bouncy houses and events for some of Plymouth’s youngest residents. To learn more about hours and events, click here.
If residents would rather walk where it’s warmer, they can visit the Plymouth Community Center’s Walking Track.
“In the fieldhouse, when I’m running, it’s low to mid-50s in there and walkers are all bundled up,” explained Wosje. “Now we have the community center that has a walking track which is kept closer to upper 60s and it’s much more comfortable to walk in.”
Besides the track, there’s also the K.U.B.E. Indoor Playground as well as indoor gymnasiums for pickleball or volleyball.
“The idea is we want our residents to stay active,” said Wosje.
Wosje says you can also stay active while checking out the art gallery, which is located inside the event wing.
“We’re constantly taking different artists, putting different works in there,” said Wosje. “If you are in the community center, take some time to enjoy the art center and the different exhibits we have in there.”
Holiday Happenings in Plymouth
There are also several holiday activities in the works in Plymouth, including Holiday at the Hilde and a brand new tree-lighting event.
“I’ll be there to light up the tree and start off the holiday season. I’m really looking forward to that event,” said Wosje.
Santa’s Mailbox is also open in November and runs through Dec. 2.
