Health Benefits of Living in a Walkable Town

Getting out to exercise should be fun, not a chore. That’s why we are focused on providing a walkable town that encourages you to stay active.

The walkability that’s built into Babcock Ranch is sure to inspire you to spend more time with friends and family outside –  and it will also boost your health! Time spent outdoors, walking around, and enjoying the fresh air reduces your risk of many types of diseases, sparks creativity, and boosts your ability to achieve overall physical and mental wellness.

Spark Your Creativity

Babcock Ranch isn’t just a great place to retire or raise a family, it’s a haven for creative thinking!

Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “all truly great thoughts are conceived by walking.” Our own experience and science agree! According to a 2014 Stanford University research report, “walking improves the generation of novel yet appropriate ideas, and the effect even extends to when people sit down to do their creative work shortly after.”

So, take a stroll down through one of our many trails and find your creative genius!

Reduce Your Risk of Disease

We want to make sure that you enjoy your life and all it has to offer for as long as possible.

Living in a walkable community could have huge impacts on your life expectancy. The American Heart Association says for every hour of brisk walking, life expectancy for some people may increase by two hours! They say that is in part because walking reduces your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and several types of cancer.

Achieve Overall Physical and Mental Wellness

Walking provides an endless amount of health benefits – both physical and mental.

Walking can boost your overall mood. Many residents also use walking as a way to connect with their friends and neighbors while keeping active. Physical and mental wellness is more important than ever, and at Babcock Ranch, you’ll have plenty of trails and walkways to safely stroll to your destinations.

Living at Babcock Ranch

Our sustainable, walkable town promotes responsible growth and conscious living. We strive to connect our residents and visitors with the wonders of nature while nurturing a healthier lifestyle and mentality.
