Edmontonians finding ways to be active every day in every season beginning at home, in their community, at work and school, and at play. That's the core of Live Active!
The Live Active strategy aims to enhance Edmonton’s reputation as a desirable city for people to live, work and play, by ensuring that all residents are empowered to make positive, active life choices. It is built on the knowledge that active living improves individual well-being, which, in turn, positively impacts their families, neighbourhoods and communities.
To live active a little more each day can begin in simple ways, at no or low cost, in ways that are quick and easy at a variety of locations by yourself, with family, or with friends. Opportunities include walking or riding a bike a little more, taking the stairs a little more at home and work, enjoying a day of gardening, or playing at the neighbourhood park. For others, it may involve deliberately working out, or finding a new active recreation or sport activity,
