Activities in Parks over the Christmas period

Active Parks supports Birmingham residents to participate in a wide range of physical activities to improve health and wellbeing whilst having fun. There are all sorts on offer to suit every member of the family – from walks and runs to Zumba, Tai Chi and tennis.

To help inspire you to get active and get outside to your local parks over the festive period we’ve compiled a list of free activities running during the Christmas holidays.
