Problem. The high prevalence rates of inactivity and the related health risks of chronic diseases are increasing in the United States. Walking paths, bike trails, and parks impact physical activity levels in a community, but health policies are instrumental for the development, maintenance, and safety of physical activity resources. The purpose of this paper is to present a systematic literature review of resources and their impact on physical activity in communities. Framework. The process for the review was developed by Roe (1993). Methods. A literature search of Medline, CINAHL, and reference lists was conducted starting with 1994; the year an expert concluded that little is known about physical activity facilitators (Dishman, 1994). The following search terms were used: community (city, county, neighborhood, school), resource (bike trail, walking path, park), and physical activity (activity, exercise). Three researchers viewed abstracts for consideration in the study, with articles further reviewed if any reviewer considered the abstract significant. A Kappa statistic will be calculated for interrater reliability. Results. There were 5,686 initial and 2,241 final abstracts, after the duplicates were removed. Included in the study were English language articles concerning a) adults, b) a community resource(s), and d) physical activity. Data collection is underway. Two researchers check every data entry made with the article data. Conclusion. Community-based physical activity resources can improve the health status of residents once development, maintenance, and safety access issues are addressed. The results of this study will transfer a concise body of research into the hands of practicing nurses, a high priority for the National Institutes of Health (2004). Practicing nurses may use this information to encourage the use of community physical activity resources for patients. Additionally, the results will be used for health policy initiatives and further research on community-based physical activity interventions.
