In its third year in 2016, ParkLives has expanded nationwide across ten key cities as well as 35 new locations via its partnership with StreetGames. It operates in over 200 community parks across Newcastle, Birmingham, the London Borough of Newham, Glasgow, Manchester and Nottingham, and, for the first time in 2016, Dundee, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent and Swansea.
ParkLives encourages thousands of people of all ages and abilities to get together through spring and summer and enjoy a wide variety of free, sociable activities from tai chi to donkey grooming!
ukactive has been involved with the programme since before its launch in 2014. We provide the overall measurement and evaluation of ParkLives as well as supporting the wider stakeholder engagement and programme development.
