Let's get active outdoors

Let's get active outdoors is a programme full of free led and self-guided walks, fitness sessions, activities and health classes that take place in Dudley borough’s parks and green spaces.

The programme incorporates healthy walks and leisure activities that take place outside across the borough. It also features cycling activities and rowing sessions at the Dudley Water Sports Centre.

What's on

Dudley Council offers a range of family friendly activities in our parks and nature reserves. The activities include seasonal sessions for Easter, Whitsun and summer holidays as well as nature trails, craft workshops and much more.

Health and progression walks

All our health walks are delivered in conjunction with Walking for Health - a national initiative that helps people access short, free and friendly health walks in their local area. Our progression walks are harder and are longer in duration, over 90 minutes.

The Dudley Let's Get Walking programme delivers a range of walks across the borough. The programme includes weekly short walks, one-off longer walks, tours that take in local history and visitor attractions, rambles and ambles for parents and children as well as routes that are accessible for wheelchair users, pushchairs and buggies.

You can take walks at your own pace without worrying about being left behind. They are open to everyone and are free of charge so it’s a great way to be active, socialise and have fun.

Many of our walks are possible due to the dedication and hard work of our volunteer walk leaders.

Find out more about Dudley's Let's Get Walking programme by visiting the walking for health website.
