Birmingham’s Active Parks initiative launches this Saturday at Walkers Heath Park with free activities for all ages.
The team running Birmingham’s hugely successful Be active sports scheme has identified a new secret weapon in the battle of the bulge: the city’s 600 parks and open spaces.
Birmingham City Council, with the support of Birmingham Sport and Physical Activity Partnership, is launching a pilot project looking at the role the city’s open spaces can play in helping lead fitter, healthier lives.
Over the next six months, visitors to five sites across Birmingham will be offered a wide range of free activities, including:
