Terryland Forest Park Walking Trails
It is well documented that the provision of walking and biking trails is one of the most cost effective and efficient ways to increase levels of physical activity among large population groups.
Physical Inactivity is the fourth leading cause of death and disease worldwide. International agencies (WHO) have identified and recognised that the prevention of these diseases is a major challenge for Governments and Organisations worldwide.
In Ireland, physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour costs the state 1.6 billion every year, in addition to the personal cost to individuals.
The Terryland Forest Park walking trails, situated in the heart of Galway city now provides us and our children with an innovative and effective means to support individuals & communities to develop healthier lifestyles & behaviours, and by so doing, reduce both the human and economic medical cost of unhealthy lifestyles.
