Albany -- Promoting exercise and physical activity to keep you healthy is a big part of the Georgia Recreation and Parks future plans.

The G.R.P.A. is partnering with the State's Public Health to promote daily exercise and physical fitness. The Recreation Association's Board of Trustees, in their meeting in Albany today, discussed ideas on how to get Georgian's exercising.

G.R.P.A. President Tod Tentler said "walking a mile per day could cut most people's medical costs by 37 percent."

The Georgia Recreation and Parks Association will continue to improve individual recreation needs like golf, bike trails, and walking tracks.
