DESTINATIONS

There is little access to trails and parks for recreational walking.

Access to trails is important.Trail and park access is essential to the walking network, especially for exercise and leisure activities. It’s important to connect parks and trails to neighborhoods, schools, transit stops, and other important pedestrian destinations. Tools to improve access to trails and parks can be found in the education, encouragement, design, planning, equity, and funding toolboxes.
