Park Active – Volunteers Week 2024

Park Active Volunteers Week 2024

The Park Active programme began on 16th February 2019, this year we are  celebrating five years of free, outdoor, group exercise sessions. Park Active sessions are led by volunteers and this achievement is a result of their passion, hard work and commitment to making a difference in their local community.

This Volunteers Week 2024 we want to say a BIG thank you to all our amazing volunteers!
