5 family friendly local locations to visit

Let's take this outside...

A balanced life is a healthy life and when the sun’s shining, there’s nothing better than heading off the beaten track for some family fun in the sun. 

Whatever cardio floats your family boat, we’ve rounded up some of the best ideas in local locations for you and your family to enjoy.

Of course our leisure centres have lots of cool activities to do as well, including tennis, swimming, gym sessions and classes, if the weather decides not to play ball! 

1 – Park Runs

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few years you can’t escape the popularity of the park run.  Fun for the whole family and a great way to see the results of all your indoor winter training.  Find a park run near you here 

2 – Kennet & Avon Canal

Whether you want to walk, jog or cycle along the towpath, or prefer to paddle on the canal itself, it’s a great place to get active and get away from roads and traffic.  Plan your route, pack your picnic and prepare to have a great day out.  There’s plenty of places to stop and refuel yourself along the way as well.
