This auto-ethnographical research narrative examines the similarities and differences of physical activity and recreation settings for youth in inner-city and suburban communities. The narrative starts analyzing the role of recreation and physical activity in a community setting through the work of recreation and physical activity professionals. This includes a review of the components that make a successful recreation program for a community. Through interviews of recreation professionals, the narrative looks into the experiences of the recreation departments of a suburban and inner city community. The narrative then explores the experiences of young people as well as myself in these recreation settings. Ultimately, the goal of the research is to see if suburban and urban youth receive the same opportunities and resources to stay active and live healthy lives, as well as participate in recreation activities.
