System for Observing Play and Recreation in Communities (SOPARC): Reliability and Feasibility Measures
Journal of Physical Activity and Health
New tools are needed to examine physical activity and the contexts in which it occurs. Community parks contribute to physical activity, but measuring activity and associated variables in them is challenging because area contexts change and the numbers and characteristics of users are highly variable.
