During a time of rising living costs and record high fuel prices, we want to help you and your family stay active this summer without feeling the pinch. We’re inviting you to step outside and make the most of the great outdoors and discover some free activities right on your doorstep.

Our #OutdoorsIsFree campaign is about enjoying the great outdoors, re-connecting with nature and re-connecting with each other.

Check out our selection of free activities below to help you, your family and friends keep active this summer #OutdoorsIsFree
