Ideas to get you started

Parks and nature reserves in Wyre Forest

Visit one of our parks or nature reserves. We are very fortunate here in Wyre Forest to have so many beautiful areas to wander through and take in the stunning views. We are always on the look out for conservation volunteers to help look after our fantastic local nature reserves. Some of our reserves also have fitness trails.

Walking is a great way to get active. Try and build more walking into your every day life or take part in a group walk and explore our beautiful district by foot. Why not take part in activities organised as part of National Walking Month (May).

A health walk is available on most days of the week somewhere in Wyre Forest, and the best part is they're free!

Cycling - it’s never too late to learn to cycle, with free training available to Wyre Forest residents aged 16+. Plan your route with our free Wyre Forest cycle map, find out about off-road public cycling at Stourport Sports Club, or look out for cycling activities organised for Bewdley Bike Week.

Activities for older people include activities from yoga and Pilates to belly dancing and drumming! Our activities for older people page includes details of a wide range of activities taking place throughout the district. The local Sports Partnership website has advice on healthy ageing and details of local strong and steady exercise classes aimed at people who feel unsteady on their feet or have had a fall.

Fitness Apps download an app on your smart phone to help keep you motivated. The Active 10 App encourages you to take a brisk walk in blocks of at least 10 minutes. If you’re looking to get into running, try the Couch to 5k App.

Change 4 Life and get active with the kids or grandkids. Children need to be active for 60 minutes a day. Check out Change 4 Life for lots of ‘ten minute shake up’ ideas; you can also sign up if you wish for ideas and inspiration throughout the year.

Watching your weight? If you’re getting more active in a bid to lose weight, developing healthier eating habits may help you too. The NHS One You website has information on healthy weight loss , healthy eating and drinking
