Physical Activity for Everyone

Nature Walking

Regular physical activity helps to build a healthy body and mind. A blend of activities that build strength, cardiovascular fitness, as well as balance and coordination, is best for all ages. Being outdoors in nature has an important added benefit of calming the brain, increasing creativity, decreasing anger and aggression, and enhancing learning. Communities that are built to support and promote physical activity are key to enhancing our ability to be active and healthy.

Being Canadian, we benefit from having a variety of seasons to enjoy a variety of activities. In the Summer there are many water and land activities we can safely enjoy. In the fall we can enjoy the trails and the beautiful fall colours. In the winter there are many activities that we can do in the snow and on ice.  Being active is great for all bodies, young and old!



Building Healthy Active Communities

Community partners are working together to promote, advocate for, and enhance regular outdoor physical activity and play that is appropriate for a variety of residents living in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark.

  • Get involved in making your community a “Healthy Community”.  Find out if your community has endorsed the Healthy Communities Vision or if it is involved in the Healthy Communities Initiative. See how you can get involved.

  • Consider how to make improvements to active transportation in your community that will help residents move actively from one place to another e.g., more walk-friendly and bicycle-friendly communities. School communities can also promote active transportation by working together with community partners on school travel planning.

  • Sometimes the barrier to being active is not feeling safe to walk or cycle in your community. Find out how to feel safer being active in your community and get involved in helping create a more physically active place for you to live, work and play. If you enjoy walking, consider supporting or starting up a local Get WITH (Walking In The Halls) It walking program this winter.

  • Finding Low and No Cost Activities in your area may be a challenge; here is a place to start.
