More People, More Active, More Often!

Come and join HYPE on the 27th and 28th of January (the last weekend of the month!) to celebrate our official 2018 opening of ‘Park Inner Park.’

There will be an array of FREE, family-friendly events happening over the weekend including a football festival for under 8s, photography competition, fitness bootcamp session and even an opportunity Build Your Own Birdbox!

Get to know your community, get together and get active! Enjoy the fantastic park spaces available and meet your local youth organisation!

Our ‘Park Inner Park’ is part of Birkenhead Park, located on the Park Road East side. 

Breaking it down…

WHY? HYPE want to encourage local people to get active and enjoy the fantastic parkland Birkenhead has to offer. Being outdoors is proven to benefit our physical and mental wellbeing- and what better way to kick-start our New Year’s fitness resolutions than some fresh air!

WHAT? The weekend Park Launch will offer a range of events from football fixtures to gardening projects and photography. We hope there is something for everyone! Check out our schedule below for more information…

WHEN: The weekend of the 27th-28th of January. HYPE hope to offer a similar programme of events at the end of each month… so watch this space….

WHO? Us, of course! For the weekend programme, HYPE will be partnering with Birkenhead Park (you will notice some of our sessions will be held in the visitors centre). CyclingUK will also be supporting us, and hosting their own Wirral I-Cycle Bike Ride, which you can sign up to by following this link.
