Food Fit Philly


Philadelphia's trails, parks, pools, and recreation centers can help children and adults get the physical activity they need to stay healthy.

Get Healthy Philly is working to increase active communities by promoting the use of the city’s parks and recreation system, and by planning healthier communities that provide more options for people to be active in their own neighborhoods.


What is an active community?

Healthy, active communities are neighborhoods in which:

  • Residents can run errands and access services without a car.
  • Children and seniors feel safe walking or biking for transportation.
  • Community members are connected to Philadelphia’s employment
    centers, recreational centers, and cultural opportunities via public
    transit, sidewalks and/or bike lanes.

How is Get Healthy Philly promoting activity in communities?
