Recent developments with this project
Studies confirm multiple health benefits from completed greenway
May 4, 2016 - We commissioned a study by the UBC Health and Community Design Lab and partnered with the centre for Hip Health and Mobility on another study entitled, "Active Streets, Active People". Both studies examined the effects of improved access to walking, cycling and opportunities for social connection along the completed greenway. Results included:
- 16% increase in the number of moderate physical activity
- 9.8% decrese in the number of days of poor mental and physical health
- Cycling trips increased 49% and auto trips decreased 35%
Read the news release and the two research reports for more details.
Once the full Comox-Helmcken Study research findings have been published the full report will be available on our website.
June 2013 - Section 1 of Comox-Helmcken Greenway is now completed.
