Parklife this Sunday

This is a re-post of previous news: we got the day wrong: Parklife is taking place this Sunday, not Saturday.

South Cambridgeshire District Council’s ParkLife festival is on this Saturday Sunday.

Parklife allows visitors to explore a variety of ways to improve their health and wellbeing and the opportunity to try a range of sports with a view to inspiring them to be more active.

The event will get underway with the regular 2k junior parkrun, marking the official start of Parklife 2017.

All activities are free of charge and for most it will be a case of turning up to take a turn.

The Water Zone will feature kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding plus the chance to try your hand at angling too. These taster sessions are popular so to help manage demand, half the slots will be available to book in advance. You can find all the details of the day on our Water Sport bookings page. With the help of the experienced instructors, visitors find they can quickly take to the water and have fun on the lake.

Once again Hover Aid will be offering rides across the lakes in return for a small donation to this worthwhile charity.

The action packed Cycling Zone will return, offering a myriad of bikes to try out, from multi-person, recumbent, balance and all-ability bikes in addition to the popular pedal-powered Scalextric, smoothie makers & cycling sprints.

Back by popular demand is the Wild South Cambs Zone, where visitors can get hands on, den building, fire -lighting and pond dipping.

The Extreme Zone will feature archery and some pretty challenging climbing walls, as well as the incredible spider mountain, which involves a lengthy climb up a netting tower and descent via a precipitous slide.

New this year will be Cambridge United who will be bringing along a fantastic inflatable football pitch as well as a selection of their Olympic schools activities.

There will be entertainment too, with live music, dancing, circus skills and lots of opportunities to join in and have fun.
