The IMPALA project, which was supported by the European Public Health Programme (2009-2012) and aimed to identify, implement, and disseminate good practice in the planning, financing, building, and managing of local infrastructures for leisure-time physical activity. To gather the information needed, IMPALA seeked to analyze national policies, mechanisms and instruments used in the development of infrastructures for leisure-time physical activity.

Three types of infrastructures for leisure-time physical activity are distinguished:

  • sports facilities (such as gyms, swimming pools, sports grounds)
  • leisure-time infrastructures providing specific opportunities for sports and physical activity (such as parks, playgrounds, and cycle paths)
  • urban and natural space usable for sports and physical activity (such as streets, public places, forests, beaches)

IMPALA assists in concerting efforts for the development of local infrastructures for leisure-time physical activity in EU member states, thus helping to reduce inequalities in access to infrastructures for leisure-time physical activity within and across nations.
