Getting outdoors

Getting outdoors is a great way to explore your local area, parks and green spaces and get some fresh air in the process. Many outdoor activities are free and can be enjoyed at a time that best suits you, so why not try:

Local parks and nature reserves

A leisurely stroll, run or cycle at any one of our woodlands and parks is a great way to get your heart rate up and discover ancient woodlands, wetlands, canals and green spaces.

Many of these features can be explored in Wigan's Greenheart, with activities ranging from sailing, golf and horse riding, to walking trails and orienteering.

There are also a variety of quality sports facilities and adventure playgrounds in each of the borough parks with free events and activities running throughout the year - see parks to find out more.
