Fun in the Sun - Outdoor activities to get you moving!

As the weather warms up the outdoors will come calling. Here are plenty of ways to keep moving and be active in your local park or in your own backyard.
Nature is all around us and as spring blooms to life, the chance to head outdoors and reacquaint ourselves with it is too enticing.

Studies show that daily activities in nature can benefit memory, concentration, fitness, and sleep. They can even help us age better!

But when we're limited in going to find those spaces, we turn to our own backyards and public spaces to find that connection with nature.

With these activities, you can get outside, get active and feel the benefits that living with nature can bring you.
