On July 16, 2013, the City of Coronado was designated as a Live Well San Diego city. Coronado has demonstrated their commitment to living well by providing opportunities that foster and support a high quality of life for its residents and employees. Recently, Coronado began to explore public support for a ban on smoking in most public places. Other efforts underway include the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program to improve pedestrian safety in the residential streets leading to local elementary schools. Coronado also plans to expand the existing bicycle routes and access to bicycle parking throughout the community under SRTS. The Coronado Recreation Department is part of the Coronado Unified School District Health Council which supported a Student Wellness Policy. Additionally, the Recreation Department provides programs to support physical activities for youth and life-long fitness for adults. The department offers cooking and gardening classes year-round to teach children about growing vegetables and eating healthy. Internally, the City of Coronado has the Step It Up Program which encourages city employees to walk 10,000 steps each day.
