Northampton's Active Quarter

Local people and organisations working together to make our great outdoor spaces easier to access – and more enjoyable to use.

Everyone’s environment

Being outdoors is great! It’s the perfect way to spend time with people we love and feel our best.

Northampton has lots of great outdoor spaces already, and the Active Quarter partnership (focussing on places south of the town centre) aims to make them even better. Local people and organisations are sharing their views, making improvements, and thinking about how we can all enjoy being outside more.

This website brings together updates from the partnership, activities you can take part in, and local places you can visit. Use it to learn more, be inspired, or just feel more confident getting into the great outdoors.

Use our interactive map to discover the brilliant outdoor spaces you can visit. There’s something for everyone – places for sport, relaxation, history and culture.


Our partners offer a range of events and activities. These range from sporting events and exercise classes…to wellbeing support and chances to get creative.


If you’re a local person who cares about helping everybody enjoy being outdoors – or an organisation that can contribute to the project – we want to hear from you.
