Parks and recreation, transportation, economic development, health and well-being, and land use are all sectors that contribute to building healthier communities and accessibility to nature.

This illustrated infographic visually represents these benefits.

Several pages of extracts from various research further detail the benefits the natural environment brings to all these sectors, complete with cited references.


Recognizing the value of collaborative efforts that support increases in children’s physical activity levels, KidActive partnered with community members and leaders to form the Physical Activity Network - Renfrew County. 

The PAN-RC mission is to support and develop accessible opportunities for residents and visitors to integrate physical activity into their daily lives – where they live, play, learn and work.
