Find a Moment for Movement in Springfield Park

This Mental Health Awareness Week (13-19 May), we are inviting our communities to find a moment for movement in Springfield Park with the help of our new park map and guide.

The theme for the week, as set by the Mental Health Foundation, is "Movement: Moving more for mental health".  

Being active is important for our mental health, but so many of us struggle to get enough exercise. Whether you prefer to walk, run, skip, or cycle, we encourage you to find a moment to move in Springfield Park!  

Pick up a map in the entrance to the Trinity building at Springfield Hospital or download and print a copy Springfield Park Map. There is also a Springfield Park Map - children's version. The map will help you discover everything Springfield Park has to offer, including the huge variety of plant and animal life that call the park home. With hundreds of sustainably sourced trees and plants and four acres of wild grass and flowers, the park is a haven for wildlife.  

To make your time in the park more interesting and work a few more muscles, the park has a number of exercise areas made up of different pieces of equipment that can be used to develop balance, strength and coordination. You will also find three activity areas with stepping stones, climbing rocks and balancing beams for a fun outdoor workout! The locations of the activity and exercise areas  (and spots for a rest afterwards!) are highlighted on the map.  

The first 19 acres of Springfield Park opened to the public in summer 2023. The remaining areas, which will continue to open between now and 2027, will feature a pavilion café, an amphitheatre, youth shelter, further play and exercise areas, a sensory garden and much more.  

The park has important green credentials. As well as adding to local biodiversity, the park has meant that no waste was taken off-site following the development of Springfield Village – it’s all been reused in the park. The amphitheatre is being built using reclaimed brick from the construction of Springfield Village, while the ponds’ ‘attenuation ponds’ are a sustainable rainwater collection system.
