What to expect?
The Cambs Open Space website signposts you to outdoor spaces where you can enjoy physical activity to improve and maintain your health and wellbeing, along with inviting spaces to socialise and enjoy with friends and family.
Cambs Open Space presents the top 200 parks in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, providing information and links to external websites for organisations that manage and run the parks.
You can search for Parks, Activities (such as cycling, football, volunteering, etc.), and Events (like ParkRun, nature walks, and so forth).
There is also an interactive map that allows you to find parks near you, with filters for types of activity, facilities, and features.
The Resources page has a photo competition, ’50 Things to do Before You’re Five’ activities, and some suggested walking routes.
