Canada’s Most Walkable City

Walkscore recently ranked all of the major Canadian cities for their walkability, and Vancouver came out #1. Check out this link for an interesting interactive “heat map” showing walkable corridors throughout the lower mainland.

Did you know that the average resident of a walkable neighborhood weighs 6-10 pounds less than someone who lives in a sprawling neighborhood? Cities with good public transit and access to amenities promote happiness. Over 82% of CO2 emissions are from burning fossil fuels, your feet are zero-pollution transportation machines.

Research also shows that a single point of Walk Score can be worth up to $3,000 of increased value for your property. Read the research report here.
