These will include a park run for runners, joggers and walkers; a taster session in Nordic walking, a mums and tots buggy walk, a health walk, family cycle, and a guided nature trail. Other ‘possible’ activities include an introduction to archery and basic fly fishing skills.

There will also be fun for the kids with face painting, bouncy castle etc.

According to Ballymena Borough Council, the initiative fits in well with their strategic theme of ‘Protecting the People and Place of Ballymena and Supporting their Health and Wellbeing’.
