The East Bank is the most recreation and athletic friendly neighborhood in the region. Miles of trails border the St. Joseph River and the East Race white water rapids course (with work out stations). The sidewalks along the shops and restaurants are well lit, and the ice-skating is superb. There is a great neighborhood dog park between Niles Ave and the East Bank Trail, so even the furry friends can romp around and socialize. There are neighborhood yoga studios, dance classes, and a fitness center. A private gym is also available to tenants in a Matthews property.
