Park Life Education Packs

Please note these packs are for information only - changes may have been made to footpaths on the orienteering trails

The free physical activity packs are available to enable everyone to get out onto their local green space and become more physically active – just by using equipment at the park that is already on hand. Benches, trim trails, steps and post can all be used to exercise and to help increase activity rates on a general walk around the park.

The packs, which show links to the curriculum, include walking, cycling and exercise activities and the Greenwood Partnership has also worked closely with Nottinghamshire Orienteering, to provide orienteering activities that are also included in the pack. Aimed at schools, the packs have also been designed with local communities in mind and can be used by anyone visiting the parks.
