Divine Savior Healthcare is excited about the possibility of a walkable and bikeable trail system throughout Portage.  More trails will positively impact tourism, economic development, recreation and our historic attractions while increasing the health and wellness of our community.


• Opportunity for community events that will bring in participants from other areas, leading to increased lodging and food sales

• Less pollution production

• No-cost recreation and transportation

• Decreased cardiovascular disease due to opportunity for increased heart-healthy exercise

• Reduced stress and depression

• Opportunity for families to spend quality time together while focusing on both mental and physical health
