Bulletin 6: Multi-purpose recreation trails for physical activity and sport

2016-2018 Physical Activity Monitor (Adult focus),

March 11, 2019

The Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute’s 2016-2018 Physical Activity Monitor asked Canadian adults about their perceptions about the availability, their satisfaction, and usage of a variety of places to be active within the community. Previous bulletins examined places that one can safely walk, spaces to safely bicycle, other types of specifically designed places to be active, and a future bulletin examines parks and green spaces. This current research bulletin examines the availability of multi-purpose recreation trails for physical activity and sport, satisfaction levels with the amount of these trails, and their usage.
