Neighborhood Amenities

The availability of neighborhood amenities, such as playgrounds, community centers, and libraries, provide children with opportunities for recreation, education, and socializing without going far from home. Overall, 73.3 percent of children were reported to live in neighborhoods with sidewalks or walking paths; 80.8 percent had a park or playground in their neighborhood; 86.0 percent had a library or bookmobile in the community; and 65.0 percent had a recreation center, community center, or Boys' and Girls' club. Only 4.6 percent of children were reported to live in neighborhoods with none of these amenities, while 48.2 percent of children lived in neighborhoods with all of these amenities (data not shown).
