Description: The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the shared interest of the public health and leisure fields in promoting outdoor recreation. We describe how trans disciplinary integration of research efforts across these fields can lead to a better understanding of how outdoor recreation facilities and programs can help realize a full range of health and wellness benefits. Collaboration between practitioners in these fields can help a community meet its health and wellness goals. A case study of a proposed community recreational trail development is used as an example for how public health and leisure fields can collaborate to achieve shared health and wellness goals.
