Getting Active

Active Transport

Walking and Cycling are great ways to get around Frankston, and are healthy and sustainable transport options. To find walking and cycling tracks in your area, use our Walking and Cycling Path brochure - available in the related documents section of this page

Easy Peasy Playbook

Physical activity is important in a child's life. Children require at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity and no more than two hours of screen time (including television, DVD, computers and electronic games) each day.

This Playbook has been developed with the assistance of Ballam Park Primary School and Frankston Family Day Care. There are many ways to be entertained and active. Included are a range of activities for different weather conditions, weekends, holidays and celebrations for children, families and even teachers to participate in.


Frankston City Council encourages schools to join the Bicycle Victoria Ride2School Program, which promotes the health, sustainability and safety benefits of riding to school.
