About the Database

The database centrally collates information about parks, recreation, and sport facilities across Canada, including location, size, amenities and age. This information drives additional insight with these features:

  • Dashboard highlighting infrastructure and facility metrics and benchmarks, including per capita counts at the national, provincial/territorial and local levels.
  • Movement mapping module illustrating the casual, typically non-measured, use of active environments over time and across periods of the year.
  • Community profile mapping illustrating populations, health, and wellness demographic profiles at neighbourhood, city, and provincial/territorial geographies across the country.
  • Ability to make infrastructure comparisons across provinces and territories, municipalities, and neighbourhoods.
  • Determine the proximity of facility provisions to various equity-deserving populations and demographic groups.
