Richmond County Physical Activity Strategy

In 2009, Richmond County adopted a Physical Activity Strategy.  This strategy intends to engage key stakeholders, community partners and residents of Richmond County in developing and implementing a plan to increase opportunities and enhance support for Physical Activity. The Strategy will also be a call to action to address health risks and the burden of illness associated with physical inactivity.  The overall purpose of the strategy is to identify ways to get more people in Richmond County to be more active more often. 

Please take a look at the current strategy below:

Richmond County Physical Activity Strategy

Since the Physical Activity Strategy is now over 10 years old, the Municipality of the County of Richmond, in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, is in the process of updating this strategy.  Once the strategy has been updated, it will be posted here.
