Sport and leisure

Walking is an activity that all the family can do together. It's a great form of exercise and good for your mental and emotional wellbeing too.

Here in Barnsley we have a range of fantastic places to walk, from countryside footpaths bordering the Peak District, to multi-user trails such as the Trans Pennine Trail. There are paths through woodlands, parkland, reservoir trails and nature reserves. There's something to suit everyone so just pick a route, or find a group ...
