Physical Activity

HN Online Guide

Along with a healthy diet, physical activity can help protect individuals against many chronic diseases. People can incorporate daily activity into their lives by walking and bicycling to school, work or public transit.

Providing facilities and trails and paths for recreational walking and biking encourages residents to spend time outdoors and be active. Facilities that are well lit, easily accessible to residential centers, and aesthetically appealing typically attract more use.6
