Get active this half term with FREE ParkLives activities
Posted on: Friday 16 February 2018
A range of FREE sports and activities are coming to parks and fields in Bridgend County Borough this February half term.
Funded by Coca-Cola, and supported locally by Bridgend County Borough Council, the ParkLives sessions will make the most of local green spaces by offering activities for all ages.
The fun starts on Monday 19 February with Balance Bikes, Zorb Football, an Assault Course and Gladiators for children from 10am – 1pm at Brackla Sports Fields while all ages can relax with Tai Chi and Wellbeing at Porthcawl Cosy Corner Green from 2pm – 3pm.
On Tuesday 20 February, why not head down to Bryngarw Country Park from 2pm – 3pm for more Tai Chi and Wellbeing, followed by a brisk park walk between 3:30pm and 4:30pm.
You can also stretch your legs with Nordic Walking at Newbridge Fields on Wednesday 21 February from 1pm – 2pm, while Ogmore Life Centre will be offering an Adults Cycling session from 2:30pm – 3:30pm.
There will be another Adults Cycling session at the Garw Valley Leisure Centre on Thursday 22 February from 9am – 10am, with more peaceful Tai Chi and Wellbeing at the Caerau Community Hall from 10:30am – 11:30am and at Newbridge Fields from 2pm – 3pm, where there will also be Nordic Walking (12:30pm – 1:30pm) and Active Play (1pm – 3pm).
We are thrilled that the ParkLives initiative is returning to the county borough this half term, encouraging people to get out and use their local parks more. It’s a fun and active way for children to socialise with their friends or even make some new ones, while adults have the choice of a few different activities to help get them moving more.Councillor Dhanisha Patel, the council’s Cabinet Member for Wellbeing and Future Generations.
ParkLives in Bridgend County Borough is part of a partnership with Swansea and Neath Port Talbot and is funded until 2020. All of the ParkLives activities are FREE, and any children aged under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
