What Banshee Loves About It: A day in the sun playing in the water and practicing handstands whether that be on the paddle boards or beach!

Bluffs Regional Park– An easy to get to trail where you can get some practice trail running with elevation.

Stress Relief:

Trails Rec Center– With a sauna, steam room, hot tub, and lazy river this a great place to help relieve some of our daily stressors as well as any muscle soreness.

Why Banshee Finds It Healthful: While they offer so much more you will most likely find us somewhere in the water and since the fees are reasonable it feels like a spa experience without dropping some major cash.
