Whether on foot, bike, skateboard or wheelchair, when you choose to get around by your own power, you’re choosing active transportation. And when you choose active transportation, you benefit yourself and your community in many ways. Of course you do your body good when you design exercise into your day. But you also decrease congestion on town roads, minimize damage to town streets (heavy motorized traffic is much harder on road surfaces, and requires more maintenance), and act as a model of sustainability to others.
Kentville is fortunate to have a very walkable downtown, and an incredible network of trails. Residents can easily and safely choose active transportation options. We’re continually working to make walking or wheeling around town even easier and more enjoyable. Kentville's Active Transportation Plan will guide our work over the coming years - click the document on the right to see the plan!
