Recreation Needs Study
The Recreation Needs Study – A Healthier Inner West provides an analysis of the current and projected recreation needs of the Inner West community.
For the purposes of this study recreation is defined across a broad spectrum ranging from unstructured activities like picnics, walking the dog and playing in parks, streets and laneways; to organised sport and everything in between.
Participation in, and access to, recreation opportunities brings significant physical and mental health and social benefits to individuals, improved development outcomes for children and young people, and social benefits to the community.
