Thanks to the nationwide  ParkLives programme, we’re running free, fun activities in parks and open spaces across Southampton.


We’re running a daily series of free, family-friendly outdoor activities in the heart of your local communities – the parks. From Zumba to Tai Chi, football to tennis, dog walking to gardening, all our activity sessions are free and absolutely anyone can join in – yes anyone!


Who is it for?

THE PARKLIVES PROGRAMME IS OPEN TO EVERYONE!

Mums, grandparents, children, colleagues and friends are all welcome along to our sessions. Some specialist sessions may have minimum ages or abilities. Click here for more details.


When is it?

THE PARKLIVES PROGRAMME RUNS 7 DAYS A WEEK, THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

Activities and times vary from park to park. See below to find out what's going on near you.

How much is it?

All our fun activities are totally FREE – and there’s no catch! Simply turn up and drop into the session or book ahead to let your session leader know you’re coming.
