With just a little planning, you can grow food nearly all year long in Denton. Join our many returning gardeners in reserving one of our fifty available Bowling Green Community Garden plots to grow vegetables year-round and reap the benefits of a fruit and vegetable heavy diet! Our gardening series teaches proper soil preparation and production optimization within your garden and the plants and trees native to our region. Getting to grow your veggies means that you get to eat all of that wonderful, fresh produce! According to the American Heart Association, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can boost your immune system, lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. A plant-based diet can also reduce your risk of cancer and help you maintain a healthy weight.

dancing THE BEAUTY OF DANCE IS MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE Dance classes can help a child’s emotional well-being. When kids participate

Tippi Toes Dance Company Returning January 2022

in dance classes and increase their level of physical fitness, they may feel emotionally and mentally more positive. When you exercise, you release chemicals called endorphins that trigger positive feelings.

Toddler & Me, 18 months-3 years

Dance also encourages kids to release their inhibitions and build confidence. Dance classes can help kids develop a more positive self-image, which is especially important for children who may struggle with their weight. Finally, dance requires a certain level of focus and practice. Kids can learn to focus their movements, control their emotional energy, and practice to achieve higher goals. These skills will help a child’s emotional well-being in academics as well.

Every Thursday, 6:15-7 p.m. $70 per month at MLK Jr. Rec Center

Dance classes can improve a child’s social skills and self-esteem. Dance classes

encourage kids to interact with other children their own age. Through these interactions, your child may develop new and lasting friendships. Choreography often requires teamwork, patience, and partnership. Kids will learn how to move in a group and synchronize. They will also learn the value of teamwork to achieve goals. With these skills, kids will improve their socialization. If your child is shy, dance is a beneficial way of building trust and openness. This social activity can help kids break out of their shell, develop their self-esteem, and improve their communication skills.

Adventures Denton is leading the Lewisville Lake Paddling Trail Project along with several municipalities with lakefront access, Texas Parks & Wildlife, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and other state and local organizations. With this collaboration, residents will have the opportunity to launch from over 40 sites throughout Lewisville Lake, its tributaries, and corridors. The routes will feature different distances and experiences. Denton is currently assessing and hoping to implement launch sites at Old Alton Bridge along Hickory Creek, Pecan Creek, Cooper Creek, and the Elm Fork Greenbelt. The Lewisville Lake Paddling Trail will create trail systems that interconnect around Lewisville Lake, promoting safe and fun trails for paddlers! Photo Credit Thorpe Griner

If you love the outdoors, then consider kayaking. The physical benefits include core conditioning, increased aerobic capacity, and weight loss. According to the American Council on Exercise, an average person weighing 125lbs can burn up to 300 calories per hour of kayaking and a 200lb person can burn up to 500 calories per hour. 14 | Unite, Grow, Play


In addition to the benefits of weight loss, kayaking can greatly improve your mental health. The Journal of Leisurability found that kayaking leads to increased social skills and sense of self, as well as an overall boost in self-satisfaction. In a nutshell, Kayaking is therapy for the body, mind, and spirit. 15

PICKLEBALL The fastest growing sport you've never heard of

Pickleball is an indoor or outdoor paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. The game has had a 650 percent increase in numbers over the last six years, according to USA Pickleball Association. The biggest subset of that growth is not in the over-60 crowd, says Justin Maloof, executive director of USAPA, but the younger set.

Beyond being fun, it's racking

up some serious benefits!

Beyond being fun, pickleball has proven to rack up benefits whether played casually or hard core. It was originally made popular by Baby Boomers, but the sport has made a generational jump and is now being played by all ages. According to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association 2018 Participant Report, pickleball currently has 3.1 million players in the US. Regardless of age, health benefits give pickleball a large appeal physically, socially, and mentally.

Future courts will be built in phases.

Nette Schultz Park Pickleball Court

Can Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease A recent study in the International Journal of Research in Exercise Physiology found middle-aged and older adults who played one hour of pickleball three days per week for six weeks improved their blood pressure, cholesterol, and cardiorespiratory fitness levels. Can Cut Your Risk of Depression Exercise in general is a proven mood booster—and pickleball is no exception. A recent study in Leisure Studies found older adults who played in pickleball tournaments had a lower risk of depression. Can Get you Hooked on Exercise A study in the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity found people become loyal to the sport because it helps them meet their fitness goals and enhance social connections. It’s a two-for-one workout!
