Nottingham has become the fourth council in Great Britain to team up with Coca-Cola to bring ParkLives to its residents, following last year’s success in Birmingham, Newcastle and The London Borough of Newham. The programme of fun, free activity sessions are being delivered by dedicated instructors with the hope of getting more city dwellers active in their community parks and green spaces.
The fun and games will take place in a number of parks, including Wollaton Park, Clifton Playing Fields and Highfields Park, and run until late September. ParkLives is designed to appeal to people of all ages and abilities and offers a range of sports and activities, from Zumba to rounders.
To celebrate the Nottingham launch of ParkLives, a special event took place this week during half term at Colwick Country Park. The day featured wall climbing, high rope courses, park ranger activities and canoeing and powerboating on the lake. There was also Thai Chi, rounders, archery, football and scenic picnic areas for friends and families to rest and relax in between activities.
ParkLives is part of Coca-Cola’s commitment to invest £20m between now and 2020 in programmes to encourage and support one million people to be more physically active.
