Parks, sports and leisure

Children being active

Water slides, circus skills and crazy golf are just some of the activities that will be on offer at free family fun days across North Northamptonshire this summer.

Organised by North Northamptonshire Council, the events will take place on Wednesday afternoons throughout August in Corby, Kettering, Rushden and Wellingborough.

  • Corby – Wednesday, August 2 – midday to 4pm – West Glebe Park, Corby,  NN17 1SZ
  • Wellingborough – Wednesday, August 9 – midday to 4pm – Castlefields Park, Wellingborough, NN8 1LW
  • Kettering – Wednesday, August 16 – midday to 4pm – North Park, Kettering, NN16 9JT
  • Rushden – Wednesday, August 23 – midday to 4pm – Spencer Park, Rushden, NN10 6UL

Other activities include arts and crafts, giant garden games, basketball and football, archery and a bubble station.

Sometimes it can be a real challenge keeping children entertained during the long summer holidays, so we’re delighted to be able to offer our free fun days during August.

There’s no need to book in advance, just come along, and families can even bring along a picnic to eat in the park too.

The fun days are part of a variety of summer activities that we have on offer in North Northamptonshire, such as our swimming sessions which are free for under 18s. 
Keeping activities free or low cost is a great way of making them accessible to as many people as possible.
Cllr Helen Howell, Deputy Leader of the Council and Executive Member for Sport, Leisure, Culture and Tourism
Not only do these fun days provide entertainment to keep children happy and healthy, but they are also great ways of bringing communities together too. I’m delighted that we’re able to offer these across the North Northamptonshire area.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council
