Halton's green spaces not only look good, they can make us feel good too.
A new series of events in some of Halton's most popular parks and gardens are running from now until Christmas, and will give people the opportunity to boost their health and wellbeing as well as enjoying the fresh air and the changing autumn colours.
The activities include nature walks, gardening and "green gym" sessions at sites including Victoria Park, Pickering's Pasture, Pex Hill, Runcorn Hill Park, Norton Priory and Windmill Hill.
The activities are free and open to everyone, including children, disabled people and those with carers.
David King, Health Improvement Specialist, said: "Research released this week by Big Lottery shows that physical activity can have a drastic and long-term impact on health and wellbeing.
"Not only does keeping active help you shed the pounds, but it also increases confidence and boosts mood. We're encouraging people to join the sessions in order to meet new people and stay active during the winter months."
