|Local and national
government, voluntary organisations, clubs have a mutual interest and some
responsibility for making exercise "an easy option".
Provision of easily accessible and cheap facilities of good standard - tennis courts, golf,bowls is worthwhile.
The London Parks are "the Lung of London", they are well used by walkers, joggers, lovers, visitors who walk, talk, lie in the sun, kick a ball or exercise a dog.
Schools usually have gymnasia, sometimes a swimming pool or running track. These facilities are often unused at nights or weekends and instead could be made available to the neighbourhood.
Walkers, joggers and cyclists need to feel safe and the provision of walkways, cleanliness, scenery and policing are important e.g the river walks in Australia’s main cities.
