School’s out fur summer! And, with the long school holidays stretching ahead of you, there are plenty of ways to keep the kids occupied and active for FREE in Birmingham parks this summer.


  1. Join us at a Pop-Up Park
    Head to one of our ParkLives Pop-Up Parks for football, badminton, soft archery, tennis and much more. We’ve got FREE activities for all the family in parks across the city. Check out the schedule here:
  2. Try canoeing, rowing and sailing at Edgbaston Reservoir
    You really can take to the water for FREE with ParkLives sessions at one of Birmingham’s most beautiful spots. Join the fun every Tuesday.
  3. Anyone for tennis?
    If you were inspired by Wimbledon, check out the FREE tennis sessions in Aston Park, Cannon Hill Park, Calthorpe Park and Ward End Park every weekend.
  4. Take up running
    With so many parks and the canal network, Birmingham is a great city for running. We have Couch to 5K classes for beginners in many city parks and a range of events including the Morrisons Great Birmingham Run
  5. Join a conservation group
    Not everyone wants to be an athlete but there are a number of ParkLives conservation sessions offering a weekly workout for the non sporty. Try Active Conservation at Lickey Hills Country Park or the Tuesday Conservation sessions at Woodgate Valley Country Park.
