During Term One of the Redlands Healthy and Active Program, more than 300 people per week enjoyed the free weekly physical activities offered by Redland City Council.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said a second term of Healthy and Active would run from 16 April to 30 June and was set to be even bigger – with more activities, more variety, and something for everyone, from young kids to retirees.
“I am delighted so many Redlands residents have already taken up the challenge to get up and get active, with over 400 registering for last term’s activities using the flexible Team App,” Cr Williams said.
“But it’s not too late to get involved! Term two is kicking off with many favourites continuing on, in addition to new offerings such as pilates, yoga dance, women’s mountain bike and metafit.
“Once again they’ll be run in Redlands parks, open spaces and outdoor venues, making the most of the beautiful Redlands environment.”
New for kids this term is the Active Pop Ups Program, delivered under the Queensland Government’s Embracing 2018 Legacy Program for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games and funded by the Australian Government.
Mayor Williams said qualified coaches from Redlands’ local sport and recreation clubs would run the Active Pop Ups.
“Children from five to 17 years-of-age will be able to choose from 15 different activities – from parkour and soccer through to kayaking yoga – with some being offered as single sessions and other as short courses of up to 4 weeks.
“It’s a great chance for youngsters to try their hands at new activities free of charge. No experience is necessary, but parents should check they’re able to attend all the required dates before booking.”
Check out this term’s full schedule and information on the range of free weekly activities – all out in our beautiful open spaces.
