This study aimed to investigate the relationship of environment and social support on physical activity of fifth and sixth grade primary schoolchildren in urban area. Two hundred and ninety-six fifth and sixth grade school students from five elementary schools in Taipei City were recruited to participate in this study among them 208 students completed the self-administered questionnaire. The contents of the questionnaire included the frequency, intensity and duration of their physical activity as well as social support received from their family, friends and teachers. Data of the perceived environment were collected from their care-takers. Besides descriptive analysis, Analysis of Variance, and multiple regression were used to analyze the data. Physical activities of different intensity level were analyzed separately. It was found that girls engaged in more light activities and boys engaged in more vigorous activities; however, there was no difference in moderate activities between genders. With light traffic, safe street, and lower crime rate in the neighborhood and company from family and teachers, school students tended to engage in light physical activity. With better sport accessibility, school students tended to engage in more moderate physical activity. With better sport ccessibility, and company from teachers school students tended to engage in more heavy physical activity. The government and the schools need to take the environmental and social support factors into consideration in implementing physical activity programs for the primary school students.
