Leeds Let’s Get Active in the Park
Get ready to get active this summer in Leeds! Summer 2016 sees the launch of Leeds Let’s Get Active in the Park, expanding the already hugely popular Leeds Let’s Get Active programme. Since it began in September 2013, the Leeds Let’s Get Active project has provided thousands of people right across Leeds the opportunity to access free gym and swim sessions in the Council’s leisure centres. In order to continue to build on the success of the past three years, the project is growing to include free activity across three parks this summer. Armley, East End and Middleton parks will play host to a variety of different activities, including: rounders, tennis, running, multi-sport, cycling, table tennis, orienteering and more!
As part of the Leeds Let’s Get Active in the Park programme, there has been investment into some of the facilities in each of the parks. All three have had a permanent, brand new stainless steel table tennis table installed while the tennis courts have also seen refurbishment by way of new nets and re-lining. Added to the excellent existing facilities such as playgrounds and bowling greens and topped off by the huge areas of green space available to use – these new additions have made these parks the place to get active this summer!
So how do I get involved?
It’s simple! Firstly check out the weekly timetables to decide which of the activities you would like to have a go at. You can find these in the Leeds Let’s Get Active section of the Active Leeds website or by following this link:
There’s no limit to how many sessions you attend so you can give everything a try if you wish (And did I already mention….it’s completely FREE!). Once you’ve decided what you fancy trying out, just turn up to the session ready to go! There’s no need to book in advance, come wearing comfortable clothing/trainers and bring along a drink of water as well.
