Northwest Vista College has a beautiful new feature that will keep the community active. The new half-mile fitness trail stretches along the outskirts of the campus and is outlined with beautiful landscape.
The trail is open during daylight hours and begins just north of the boardwalk between parking lots 7 and 8. It can be used for running, jogging, and walking. The path is connected by crosswalks as it curves through the wooded area near the Live Oak parking lot, comes around the back side of the Mexican Persimmon Physical Plant building, runs parallel behind Palmetto Center of the Arts and ends by connecting to the pedestrian sidewalk on the south side of the Palmetto Center.
The fitness trail is not only for students, but for the entire surrounding community. The purpose of the trail was to establish a feature that would be appreciated by the community. Individuals can now enjoy fitness activities outdoors while in a safe and peaceful environment. This new addition to the campus is part of Northwest Vista’s continued promotion of a safe, clean environment.
