Activity-Friendly Routes to Everyday Destinations

Our health starts long before we visit a doctor’s office. It begins where we live, work, learn and play. That’s where we find it easier — or harder — to makes choices that affect our health: Can our children walk to school? Can we get to our local park on foot, by bike, or by bus instead of by car? Connecting everyday destinations with activity friendly routes means that you should be able to safely get to stores, schools, workplaces​ and other places by walking, biking or bus. Every bit of physical activity adds up each day to help you stay healthy and prevent disease.

Improving safety and health

From 2019 to December of 2020, the State of Alaska Physical Activity and Nutrition program worked with the Vision Zero Anchorage team to connect safe routes for walking and biking with everyday destinations like schools, workplaces, stores and playgrounds. The reports that were published during this partnership are housed on the Municipality of Anchorage website.
