Physical Activity: Communities--Walkability, Active Living and More

physical activity icon

Many communities in Minnesota are now working to promote Active Communities policies to provide safe and convenient opportunities for physical activity. Active Communities integrates physical activity into daily routines such as walking or biking for transportation or recreation, playing in the park, working in the yard or using recreation facilities. Active Communities policies and practices in community design, land use and facility access have been proven effective to increase levels of physical activity.
