Active Parks have teamed up with Reward Your World so that you can now earn BetterPoints™ for getting active in Birmingham’s parks. From simply visiting the park, to walking the dog, taking a Tai Chi class or volunteering to help a Friends of Parks group, there are lots of ways to pick up points. You can then exchange BetterPoints™ for high street vouchers or donate them to local good causes, including back to the park. There are currently 24 parks in the program with more joining this summer. Start collecting rewards today by registering at the BetterPoints™ website or downloading the app from the App store or Google Play.

Nick spoke to Be active members and Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, Cllr Steve Bedser to find out why towns and cities across the country are now looking to emulate Birmingham’s success.
