Sport and fitness for families

We encourage families to be active together.

Research from Sport England tells us that families play a key role in shaping children’s attitudes and behaviours towards physical activity and sport. This is especially true of parents and carers.

We provide informal opportunities for physical activity and sport on Cambridge’s many parks and in leisure facilities.

There are also plenty of other organisations providing sport and leisure activities that families can use together.

Augmented reality adventure trails

We have launched three augmented reality adventure trails around Cherry Hinton Hall park.

Love Exploring appYou’ll need to download the free Love Exploring app to your phone and search for Cambridge – then be amazed as dinosaurs, planets or fairies appear in front of you!

There is also a tree trail, a mindfulness trail and a sensory trail to choose from.

All of the trails are suitable for anybody aged 4 to 104, and you can enjoy them at any time.

Families Moving Courses

All these activity courses are facilitated by qualified coaches, and we encourage all members of the family to take part together. Minimum booking is 1 adult and 1 child, and you must attend all course dates.
