Developed in the fall of 2003, Get Active Orlando, brings together a multi-disciplinary team representing public health agencies, hospitals, bicycle clubs and shops, neighborhood associations, community organizations, a university, and City government to build a community focused on active living.
Get Active Orlando creates and promotes environments that make it safe and convenient for people to be more physically active. We work to bring about and sustain changes in design, transportation, and policies to cultivate and support a way of live that integrates physical activity into daily lives.
Get Active Orlando utilizes innovative approaches to increase physical activity through community design, public policies, programs and communication strategies. Our approach encompasses many fields and disciplines in order to support active living. These include land use planning, transportation, parks, programs, trails and greenways, communications, public health, design, community development and many others.
Get Active Orlando is a visionary partnership serving the community by inspiring the public to make active and healthy lifestyle changes. We offer resources, influence policies, shape our environment, and create programs to benefit individuals and the community.
Get Active Orlando is a dynamic, highly recognized organization promoting physical activity for everyone in our community where active living choices are easy choices.
