Beyond Safe Routes: Shared Use Resolution


Latino Health Physical Activity Shared Use
Share On Social!

A growing body of evidence shows that children who are physically active are better learners.

Latino and all children are more physically active when they have access to safe places to walk and play.

Join organizations like, Alliance for a Healthier Generation, American Heart Association, Boys and Girls Club of America, KaBoom!, National League of Cities, Ohio Department of Health, us, and many more in signing the Shared Use Resolution to advance shared use strategies in local communities across the country.

Shared use is an effective strategy to make school playgrounds, parks, pools, gymnasiums, and other physical activity facilities open to the public beyond their normal hours so the community can use these spaces to be active. In fact, studies show that 84% more kids are active when schoolyards are kept open for public play.

Shared use can be a strategy to address health inequities, particularly in Latino neighborhoods.

Spread the word about the Shared Use Resolution with your family, friends, colleagues, schools, community leaders, and elected officials.
