Physical Activity Community Assessment
Access to Physical Activity Opportunities
This assessment will help you determine what is available in your community and what is needed to access quality physical activity opportunities. Take a walk through your community and fill out the Physical Activity Community Assessment. After you have completed the assessment, you can use the information to educate your friends, family members, neighbors, and local government officials about what is needed in your community to make it easier to do more physical activity.
For each question, mark "yes" if a physical activity resource is available in your community; "yes, but there are some problems" if a physical activity resource is available in your community, but it needs some improvements; and "no" if it does not exist in your community. If your community has a physical activity resource, use the following rating scale to evaluate its overall condition. If your community does not have a physical activity resource, skip to the next question and leave the rating scale blank.
1=Awful 2=Many problems 3=Some problems 4=Good 5=Very good 6=Excellent
