COVID19 Update

The Park Active sessions across the four sites are re-starting from the 26th September 2020. In order to comply with current government guidance around social distancing to slow the spread of Covid19 and protect our vulnerable communities we are keeping the groups to 6 and participants must book onto sessions through Eventbrite for test and trace purposes before they arrive on the park.

Let’s get active in our local parks. FREE weekly outdoor fitness sessions for groups of all abilities.

Qualified instructors take the group through a 45-minute outdoor activity session. Everyone is able to work at their own level and enjoy the benefits of exercising outdoors. These circuit-based sessions are family-friendly, fun and suit all ages and abilities. As the sessions are outdoors they are subject to weather conditions, sessions may be cancelled in inclement weather.

The Park Active project is also recruiting and training volunteers to deliver the weekly outdoor community workouts.

Extending the offer from our existing four healthy hub sites, which each hold a timetable of activity sessions, these weekly sessions take place at the parks below:
