Barking Riverside is celebrating the opening of Playhill Park on Tuesday 16th April.  Join us from 1PM – 4PM for an afternoon of free, fun activities for the whole family.

Triangoals will be hosting children’s activities and GoodGym will be on hand to meet the community and to answer any questions about a new community based running group that participates in doing good.

There will also be FREE parkour taster sessions throughout the day, teaching adults and children how to creatively and safely use Playhill Park’s equipment to keep fit. Sessions can be booked in advance for kids, teens/adults, and families on a first come, first served basis. Links to book your free session can be found here:
