Bulletin 7: Parks and green spaces for physical activity and sport

2016-2018 Physical Activity Monitor (Adult focus),

March 29, 2019

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