Urban parks, trails are cost-effective ways to promote exercise

Providing public parks and walking and biking trails is the most cost-effective strategy to increase physical activity among large populations in urban areas, finds a new systematic review. Between May and August 2013, the researchers searched 2,058 articles relating to physical activity among wide population groups, using ten that met the criteria for this review. Their analysis found that physical activity for large population groups was more effective in terms of both costs and effects when people used public spaces for exercise.
