Garden Station has recently installed a wheelchair ramp and ADA-accessible entryway, and now volunteers aim to build wheelchair-accessible community-garden beds for residents with disabilities. Three 2-foot-wide and 6 foot-long garden beds will sit in each 18-foot-long table, which sits 36 inches off the ground. The beds all have 6 inches–8 inches of soil to accommodate growing vegetables. The specifications of the beds allow wheelchair users to easily access the table, reach across the bed, dig into the soil, and plant seeds. Garden Station requires additional funding to purchase untreated, weather-resistant western-red cedar to ensure that the plants the beds produce will be free of unwanted chemicals and safe to eat.
The Studio Fitness offers a wide selection of drop-in classes for all ages and fitness levels. Zumba classes spicily roll your body into shape with high-energy music and saucy Latin dance moves. Choose from beginner, low-impact, toning, and strength-building Zumba classes, or get your little one's feet moving with Zumbatomic classes for kids. The Studio Fitness aims to broaden hip-shaking horizons with the Indian-dance inspired Masala Bhangra workouts and hip-hop cardio classes. PUMP! weight-lifting classes are ideal for strength and toning, and can be combined with the calorie-burning power of Zumba, kickboxing, or competitive gum-chewing for six-packs on every major appendage. The yoga/Pilates fusion class gently coaxes the body human into a state of relaxation and enhanced flexibility. Most classes are 45 minutes to one hour long, and the accommodating schedule leaves no room for traditional "I was busy hunting Waldo" excuses.

Sports reign at Loose Goose Pub & Grille, where the staff pairs its signature burgers and pizzas with a rotating selection of domestic and draft brews, including regional favorites such as Yuengling’s Lord Chesterfield Ale. Guests keep an eye on flat-screen televisions to cheer on the Buckeyes as they pour their own libations from 100-ounce beer towers. Between bites of potato skins or pretzel sticks, they can challenge each other to games on the pool table or take in the music of live bands on select evenings.
