Walkable and bikeable communities have healthier residents. They have better and more equitable access to healthy food, housing, transportation, jobs and physical activity.
To make the county more walkable and bikeable, Active Living promotes policy, systems, and environmental change.
Active Living initiates this change through:
- Complete streets policies
- Active Living resolutions
- Design of roads, trails, sidewalks and transit
- Community gardens
- Funding and technical support for local initiatives
Help your community improve residents' health. Partner with Active Living Hennepin County to make your city a healthy place to live, learn, work, and play.
