Parklives

ParkLives normally offers fun activities in parks, encouraging people to make new friends and enjoy the green spaces in their local community. However, during the pandemic we have had to work differently. From balance bikes and pop up sessions to health walks in the community as well as virtual circuits and zumba, there's a variety of ParkLives sessions to suit everyone. The timetabled activities are usually one hour long and led by supportive, friendly, trained session leaders, and volunteers from the local communities.

Current ParkLives sessions

All sessions are subject to change. We will amend sessions in accordance with current government guidelines.
