In this week’s feature, Jennifer L. Copeland, Cheryl Currie, and Ali Walker of the University of Lethbridge discuss the use and the perceptions of park users in two active parks with free access to outdoor fitness equipment in Lethbridge, Alberta.

If you have not yet done so, we hope you will be willing to help us evaluate the content and format of OHPE so we can continue to be a great source of information for Ontario health promoters (and beyond). The survey takes about five minutes and is available until August 25 at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ohpe2017.
