Health Parks, Healthy People

Summer is a great time to exercise in our many leafy parks and urban gardens.

With emerging research outlining that it’s not just how you exercise but where you exercise that increases health benefits, ‘Healthy Parks Healthy People‘ is a timely online resource for people looking to increase their outdoor activity. Read the latest research on exercising outside, discover the parks’ active communities and keep track of events on their website. With a shared focus on encouraging physical activity and community connectedness, the Medibank Community Fund supports ‘Healthy Parks, Healthy People’.
