Go Parks

Go Parks - new ways to use your park

What is Go Parks?

Go Parks is a project giving the residents of Coventry new and exciting ways to use parks and greenspaces in the city. Go Parks will bring everything from sport and physical activity to wellbeing and cultural elements into your local park.

With an increasing number of people now using parks and greenspaces for activity as a result of COVID-19, we’re promoting ways to be active in parks that are fun, simple and safe.
