A new website aims to get Ramsey County residents off the couch.
The Go Ramsey site includes information on nutrition and exercise, and a searchable map with Ramsey County parks, trails and recreation facilities. The map includes walking trails, biking paths, cross-country skiing and skating venues. The goal is to get people walking and biking, promote park and trail use and encourage healthy eating.
Connie Bernardy of Active Living Ramsey Communities! (and a former Minnesota legislator) said she’s getting good feedback on the site, ranging from a mom who wants to research ice rinks and places to skate with her daughter, to a woman who will use it to find archery ranges in Ramsey County.
As we’ve reported, obesity is on the rise in Minnesota and across the country, and anything to help combat that seems worthwhile.
