Step into Summer and the great outdoors. Active Essex wants you to get moving and we have the perfect place for you to enjoy some of Essex's best surroundings as you get active - Hadleigh Park.

Active Essex is the driving force in our county to increase our levels of physical activity and sport, to help make sure we make regular activity part of our daily lives.

Their mission is to get one million people active by 2021, so we want you to help them by getting the whole family involved. We love that feel good feeling we get by staying active, not just for the body but for the mind too, Active Essex are here to help you.

Whether it's getting out on your bike, walking the dog, getting some fresh air with the kids or going to spot some of the great wildlife we have across Essex - it all counts.

There's great places you can visit to get active too, including Hadleigh Park. Since London 2012, Essex County Council, along with Active Essex, have been developing Hadleigh Park into a world-class outdoor sports and leisure venue. So it's the perfect location to get out and get fit! Especially as they've got a whole host of activities available including cycling, walking, parkour, kayaking and paddle boarding.

It's not just parks where you can get fit - you can get fit at home, at your local gym or even in your garden. Check out the Active Essex website to find out what's local to you.
