Everyone benefits from walking. Along with improved fitness and cleaner air, walking reduces the risk of certain health problems and promotes a greater sense of community. But walking needs to be safe and easy. Use this checklist to decide if your neighborhood is a friendly place to walk. Simply print off the checklist and take it with you on your next walk. As you walk, pay attention to what is working, but also note the location of things you would like to change. Enter your checklist results back into the computer survey when you return from your walk. At the end of the survey is a website to check out for ideas and resources on how to work toward fixing identified problems.
