A FitSpace community is a multifacetted system designed for healthy living. That is to say, the key program objectives are to facilitate activity and to foster a lifestyle that promotes health and wellness. This FitSpace program is protected from many aspects that threaten our ability to be active, such as an isolation from recreational space, dependency on the car, lack of community serving infrastructure. In this case, each home (box car) is a connector of street and park. One enters the front of the home from the car or the back of the home on the bike (or foot). The pathways shared within each community connects to a larger network of bikeways, aka rail trail, which makes bicycle commuting viable citywide.
