Summary  Key Messages
1. Reliable and valid intervieweradministered questionnaires were developed to investigate associations of perceived neighbourhood attributes of Hong Kong older adults with their walking for transportation and recreation.
2. Access to and availability of different types of services and destinations, provision of
facilities for resting/sitting in the neighbourhood, and easy access to/from residential
buildings may help maintain an active lifestyle by facilitating walking for transport in the neighbourhood.
3. Access to services, indoor places for walking, environmental aesthetics, low traffic, and absence of physical barriers may promote recreational walking.
