We're inspiring active Wisconsinites,
one community at a time.
What is an Active Community?
A neighborhood, city, or county that explores opportunities to enable physical activity in the daily routine of its residents. It does this by designing the built environment, safety, and accessibility for ALL people, resulting in opportunities that improve health outcomes, transportation options, and social capital within the community.

Not all strategies are required for an active community, but a comprehensive approach delivers the biggest public health impact. To learn more about the strategies, let's Get Started.
