An Objective Walkability Index for Public Health and Planning in Peel Region, Ontario, Canada


High levels of walkability are concentrated around urban core areas of Peel Region; specifically, the south-central and north-central portions of Peel Region. High levels of walkability are also present in the southern and southwestern portions of Peel Region. As distance increases from the urban cores, the levels of walkability tend to decrease. The areas of northern Peel Region typically have low walkability because of the presence of agricultural and rural land uses.
