“A community is a complex place that has everything we need to excercise, socialize, and interact.”
Physical activity and nature are deeply interconnected. Over half of Olneyville adults and children reported being physically active everyday according to a study down by the Rhode Island Department of Health and Olneyville Housing Corporation. While most residents reported being physically active, they also said they need more organized, age-specific, year-round opportunities for exercise. Residents also said obesity is a common health issue, and 41% of residents have a diagnosed chronic disease or have someone in their family who has one. There is a need for more local supports that help people manage their chronic conditions.
