Socialising and activities

The Green Gym

The Green Gym concept encourages people to improve both their physical and mental health through participation in practical and conservation or horticultural activities and is suitable for people of all levels and abilities.

The Green Gym sessions offer a range of activities including:

  • environmental management in parks
  • formal park gardening
  • nature reserve conservation

The sessions are friendly and informal and are designed to cater for all abilities and individual needs. The sessions provide an excellent way to keep active.

The Green Gym is ideal for anyone new to exercise, or those with existing medical conditions that would benefit from support to begin to increase their physical activity.
