From October 11, 2021 to January 11, 2022, almost 1,900 citizens of Dresden took the opportunity to take part in the online survey on sport and exercise. The municipal commissioners and “Eigenbetrieb Sportstätten”would like to express their thanks to all survey participants. Thanks to your participation, the state capital of Dresden received a lot of information about sports and exercise opportunities in Dresden.
The online survey on the subject of sport and exercise in Dresden completed with a relatively high level of participation and expresses above all a great interest in sports and exercise activities and how they can be organized for the future. At the same time, the planned movement space concept for the state capital Dresden will be upgraded with the results of the survey. In the exercise space concept, sports opportunities are to be developed based on a detailed inventory of public exercise spaces and concrete current needs, which show all Dresdner’s sufficient opportunities for sports and exercise activities aside of organized sports. A first evaluation of the survey results can be found below. The assessment of the participants in the survey with regard to the degree of provision with sports and exercise opportunities is particularly insightful. More than two thirds are of the opinion that there are not enough of these available in the state capital. The majority of those surveyed use public exercise areas (nature, parks, etc.) for sport and exercise. Cycling is the top sport, but skating, endurance sports and swimming are also very popular. Many of the survey participants submitted their own suggestions for the development of sports opportunities as part of this survey. The evaluation of these tips and suggestions will take some time, but will probably be available in April of this year.
