Soap Lake to Sulphur Springs: Small Towns Improve Walkability

This presentation is part of the Walking and Walkability in Rural Communities panel.

From Eufaula, Alabama, to Soap Lake, Washington… From Canton, Connecticut, to Sulphur Springs, Texas:  Small towns across the United States have demonstrated that walking and active transportation are not just for the big cities. The National Physical Activity Society has twice published single-page features on towns of 25,000 or fewer people. Collecting these 15 stories, we’ve found common threads. Want to promote walkability in your small town? Glean tips from small town leaders who have learned what they needed to do to succeed.
