"Land of Healthiness" Fitness Trail to Benefit Community

February 19, 2016

Mercy is pleased to announce the opening of the Land of Healthiness Fitness Trail. It's located at Cooper Elementary School located at 2 Blowing Springs Rd, Bella Vista, Ar.

In April 2014, the General Mills Foundation gave a $40,000 grant for the creation of a community garden and fitness trail in Bella Vista.

Mercy Bella Vista, Cooper Elementary School, and other community partners immediately jumped into action by digging in the dirt, planting seeds, and harvesting the fruits of their labor.  As a result, there have been many direct benefits to reap, above and beyond a bountiful harvest. Physical activity is at the top of the list.

The fitness and education stations are now installed and ready for use by both students and adults.

Special thanks to the General Mills Foundation for planting the initial seeds of investment and making such a positive impact in Northwest Arkansas.
