UPCO Park FitLot
Community Development Project
Improving Neighborhood Health and Vitality
Every year, Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln works to make our whole community healthier with our annual festival, Streets Alive!, a one-day event that promotes active and healthy living. Whether Streets Alive! is outdoors or online, it's about improving community health, one neighborhood at a time because strong and healthy neighborhoods benefit everyone. But Streets Alive! is more than a one-day festival. We work with the medically underserved neighborhoods who host Streets Alive! to help increase access to safe physical activity opportunities.
Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln, through Streets Alive!, teams up with the host neighborhood, Lincoln Parks and Recreation, community organizations, and other sponsors to have a lasting positive impact that improves the safety, walkability, and health of the host neighborhood through a community development project or program.
Streets Alive/UPCO Park Community Development Project
University Place, co-host of Streets Alive! in 2022 and 2023, is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. In collaboration with the University Place Community Organization, Lincoln Parks & Recreation, and neighborhood stakeholders, Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln identified a project that would improve the health of University Place residents through providing additional access to safe physical activity opportunities within the neighborhood hub, UPCO Park. The project will fund a free outdoor activity center, called a FitLot, with fitness equipment and free fitness classes, suitable for all ages and ability levels, serving children, families, seniors, and those who are physically challenged.
UPCO Park Project Sponsorship
Your business or organization can be part of making our neighborhoods strong and healthy! You can sponsor or raise funds for the Streets Alive! UPCO Park FitLot Community Development Project that will benefit not only the host neighborhood but add to the beauty, safety, and well-being of our whole city. You can help fund the project by organizing events or sponsoring an individual part of the FitLot (equipment, canopy, benches and accessories) or the project as a whole.
