The study aimed to analyze the public leisure and sports equipment of the municipalities that implemented the PELC between 2013 and 2017. For this, a digital questionnaire was applied to the 105 eligible municipalities, analyzing the data by descriptive statistics. The prevalence of equipments for collective sports and gymnastics was identified - which also materialized in the design of new areas. It was verified the need to qualify ancillary services such as parking for cars and bicycles, hydration stations, toilets / public changing rooms. It is concluded that the passage of PELC through cities can induce reflections on inseparable relations between public equipment and the guarantee of social rights.
