Children and Families

Sport and physical activity are proven to help with a child's development along with providing a great opportunity for friends and families to socialise.

The Health and Leisure Services delivers a variety of events throughout the year which are suitable for young people and families and provide an opportunity to see the great parks and open spaces available across the district.

Inflatable Fun

Coronavirus Update:

Due to COVID restrictions at the time of making this decision, we have decided not to deliver our Event Hire or Inflatable Events service this year in 2021. At the time of writing, we have little guidance on cleaning requirements and how to maintain a COVID secure procedure to use the equipment.

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that we will have the capacity and/or resources to deliver a high quality service and therefore we have taken the decision not to deliver this year from the outset to avoid disappointment.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Inflatable Fun takes place throughout the summer and will be held at a variety of parks and open spaces. It provides opportunities for friends and families to enjoy the summer weather and experience a number of our exciting inflatables including an obstacle course and gladiator duel.

Each event will be for 2 hours and costs £2 per person for ages 3 - 16. Under 3's go for free.

Love Parks

Every year we celebrate our parks and open spaces by hosting an event which is great fun for all of the family.

In line with Love Parks week, we will hold a summer event at Fosse Meadows which not only highlights the wonderful things you can do on the site, but we also provide a variety of activities and inflatable equipment including arrows archery, obstacle course, bubble football, arts and crafts, balance bikes and soft play.

We also welcome local sports clubs and organisations to come along and promote their activities.

If you would like to know more about promoting your club or organisation or to find out when Love Parks is taking place contact us below.


Xplorer is a family fun orienteering game in which you have to work together to navigate through one of our parks or open spaces and find different plaques.

Each plaque will have an image and question or fun fact about topics including space, animals, transport, Easter and Halloween.

Xplorer will be going on during the summer and you may also see it at other events such as Love Parks.
