Nottingham residents will be able to take advantage of hundreds of free and fun activity sessions taking place across the city as ParkLives returns for a second year.

Walking for health

May is National Walking Month

We're celebrating National Walking Month throughout May, with many of the weekly activity sessions tying into this theme, including Nordic walking, walking-basketball, walking-netball, health walks and nature walks.

Read all about our activities at the Park Activities website

Nottingham City Councils Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, Councillor Dave Trimble said: The ParkLives initiative is a great idea, giving people the chance to make the most of their local parks in a fun and innovative way. Nottingham City Council is always looking for ways to help more people keep active, which is what ParkLives does, offering accessible activities that are open to all abilities. Id encourage everyone to sign up and find out whats happening in their local area.

Beat the Street

Beat the Street

Nottingham has been chosen to take part in Beat the Street, a six-week game, starting on Wednesday 27 April, to get whole communities moving as part of a free 12-month programme.

The challenge is to get residents to walk or cycle as many miles as possible in a collective race to space, as small changes to everyday habits can make a big difference to your health. 


All you need to do is pick up a Beat the Street card from your nearest library, leisure centre or community centre and register it online

You then score points by walking, cycling or running from one point to another and tapping your card on a sensor.

The idea is that people from an area, school or place of work form a team and all their points are added together to win prizes but you can also take part on your own. Walking just half an hour a day, on a journey to work, school or the shops is a great way to improve your health, quality of life and well-being.
