Moving more doesn’t have to be a big commitment. Making small changes to your everyday routine can have a huge impact on your health. Make ‘moving more’ a personal goal, a family activity or a community challenge. Where ever you are, whatever you’re doing, there are so many ways to move in Calgary.
Recent studies show that the majority of Canadians are not getting enough physical activity. This has serious implications for individuals’ and communities’ health and well-being.
Community Walking Maps
These are 1, 2.5, 5 and 10 kilometer walking loops that start and end at City of Calgary facilities. They are available as a printed resource at all City pools and arenas and are downloadable at calgary.ca. Explore the community using the maps as a guide or get moving while you wait for your favourite program to start. Waiting for a family member? Walk while you wait. Find a walking map of your favourite City of Calgary facility and learn about walking safety.
