About the Active Quarter

Our mission: to support physical activity, health, and wellbeing in Northampton by bringing together outdoor spaces into a recognisable local area.

What is the vision?

By bringing together outdoor spaces in the Active Quarter, we hope to make it easier for everybody to enjoy being outdoors. Partner organisations can work together more easily – improving the quality and accessibility of these spaces.

Through this project, we hope to improve opportunities for health, active travel, economic growth, education, and pride in Northamptonshire.

Where is the Active Quarter?

The Active Quarter goes from Far Cotton in the east of Northampton, to the large Brackmills Industrial estate in the west; From the new Northampton Mountain Bike Park at Hardingstone in the south, northwards toward the town and the beautiful Becket’s Park.
