Active Quarter website launches

Welcome to the Active Quarter website. It brings together all the people, places, and organisations that are making the Active Quarter a reality.

Published November 23, 2023

What is the Active Quarter?

Northampton has lots of great outdoor spaces, and the Active Quarter partnership was formed to help make enjoying these spaces even easier. The partnership is a collection of businesses, organisations, and local people – all working together to improve opportunities for health, active travel, economic growth, education, and pride in Northamptonshire.

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.

What is this website for?

The Active Quarter website is our way of sharing the work we’re doing with you – and your way to tell us what we should do next! Across the website, you’ll find a directory of some fantastic outdoor spaces to visit in the area. We’ve included information about street lighting, seating, toilets, and other accessibility considerations to help make it as easy as possible to get active.

When we can, we’ll also publish information about upcoming health and wellbeing events or other ways you can support the local community. The aim is to help everybody discover some of the brilliant outdoor spaces Northampton has to offer, and help people feel more confident using them.

What next?

The Active Quarter is only at the beginning of its journey. And we need your help to take this work even further. We’re looking for organisations, community groups, and local residents to get involved in improving our local spaces.
