New free ParkLives activity sessions in Bridgend will get families moving this summer
Date published: 21/07/2017
The 'ParkLives' initiative starts in Bridgend next week, bringing a series of free family-friendly outdoor activities to local parks and green spaces throughout the school summer holidays.
Most of the action is taking place at Newbridge Fields in Bridgend. Every Thursday from 27 July to 31 August there will be hour-long activities including 'Mini Gladiators', 'Gladiators', Zumba, Assault Course, Balance Bikes and Parkour to choose from...all for free!
The Mini Gladiators and Gladiators sessions involve obstacle-based games for children and their families, while there will be more obstacles to negotiate when running, jumping and climbing around a Parkour course that will be suitable for all abilities.
During the school holidays there will also be free ParkLives family Tai Chi and Wellbeing sessions every Thursday at Newbridge Fields, every Monday at Porthcawl Wilderness Lakes, every Tuesday at Kenfig Nature Reserve, and every Friday at Maesteg Welfare Park. Also look out for Walking and Nordic Walking sessions too.
You can sample some of the ParkLives activities this Saturday 22 July at Newbridge Fields (1pm - 3pm) as part of a special free event to launch both ParkLives and the Summer Reading Challenge which is returning to local libraries as part of Awen Trusts work.
Families can turn up on the day for all ParkLives sessions, and if you have any queries please call 01656 815119 or click here >>>
