An activity-friendly environment is a place that makes it easy to be physically active on a routine basis. Active Community Environments (ACEs) are communities where it is easy for people of all ages and abilities to make the choice to be physically active, through planned exercise or routine daily activity. This means being able to easily walk or bike to nearby destinations such as stores, schools, parks, etc., as well as enjoy recreational opportunities within the community.
