Birmingham City Council

Active Parks

The Be Active programme has been running successfully for more than 3 years offering the citizens of Birmingham the opportunity to access gyms, classes and swimming for free.

Birmingham City Council (BCC) wants to use its parks, open spaces and outdoor activity sites to help people get active and stay active. The benefits of this are known to impact on health and well being.

For the last year Be Active, the Ranger Service and Birmingham Open Spaces Forum (BOSF) have been looking at the role Birmingham’s open spaces can play in helping the citizen’s of Birmingham get fit.

Over the coming months, visitors to the sites will be offered a wide range of free activities.

  • Cotteridge Park
  • Walkers Heath Park
  • Moonlit & Sunset Parks
  • Holders Lane Fields
  • Ward End Park
  • Edgbaston Reservoir
