Description: A growing body of research has documented positive relationships among youth physical activity levels and park use. However, most investigations to date have focused on municipal parks, and relatively little is known about the physical activity levels of racially and ethnically diverse populations of youth using different types of parks in non-urban settings. This exploratory case study addressed these resaarch gaps by examining the influence of non-urban state parks on the physical activity of youth in northern Georgia.
