There are many gyms for people to use including ymca's, youth sports are popular in all the schools. There is an ice rink as well as several ball parks and soccer/football/lacrosse fields. There are indoor and outdoor public pools. People tend to be very active or not at all. I myself walk my dogs at the city park where there are hills and stairs (I wish there was a large dog park where they could go off leash like other cities) and I go to a gym to stay fit.

More police in speed areas and checking up on teens... Lots of underage drinking partying everywhere. Advertised on all social media and parents condoning it and allowing out of hand parties in their homes. Fearful accidents will happen because of the "nothing has ever happened to me" way of thinking.
There are a few great local places I wish more people would go to like Coleman's and Cavallerio's but the big franchise places keep coming in and the crowds line up. Sackets Harbor has some wonderful Places like the Boathouse and Goodfellows.
