ParkPlay to launch at Linmere

ParkPlay is coming to Linmere From APRIL 2024

ParkPlay is launching on Linmere Park from Saturday April 6th at 10am! ParkPlay is rapidly growing throughout the UK and we’re jumping the queue to bring it to Linmere this year! It’s 2 hours of free community play, with active and inclusive games for all generations to play together! Connect with your neighbours, boss the weekend and have a lot of fun! 

What is ParkPlay?

ParkPlay is an inclusive community event of 2 hours of free play on Linmere park, for residents to enjoy a fun, active start to every weekend. The games and activities will be inclusive to all ages and all abilities. It’s about using Linmere park to bring people together to meet, move, make friends and play. Watch the video to hear what ParkPlay brings to communities taking part.



What difference does ParkPlay make?

Since launching in only 2021, there are now over 100 communities running a ParkPlay, every Saturday, in their local community spaces. From research amongst those already participating, 74% have said their weekly family activity has increased. As much as 81% say it’s improved their mental wellbeing and an amazing 99% would recommend it to their friends. It’s safe to say ParkPlay is making a positive difference to a lot of communities.

What will it look like?

For those who attended the test event on Linmere Park last summer, you’ll know it’s about people, of all ages, coming together to enjoy games, activity and play. The ParkPlay volunteer team will bring the kit and prepare the space, you only need to bring your enthusiasm, and 2 hours of your time. Remember, this is about fun and movement, and not endurance and fitness.

The first ParkPlayers at Linmere, July 2023.

The ParkPlay sessions will be hosted by trained ParkPlay leaders. They’ll keep the sessions going through Spring and Summer, as more of us join in. Once established, we hope members of the Linmere community will be interested in training to become ParkPlay leaders and take the reins on ParkPlay at Linmere.

If you want to take part, and help get ParkPlay established, then please use the link below to register your interest. You don’t have to be fully committed for every ParkPlay session, just join other residents, change your weekend and put Linmere on the ParkPlay map!
