Leisure & Play
There are many leisure and play activities in the Lake District's South Lakeland, providing fun for all the family!
If you’re feeling active, Better Leisure's indoor venues are open all year round, come rain or shine. In Kendal and Ulverston you can go for a swim, play indoor football or racquet sports, while their facilities in Windermere give you the chance to go canoeing, windsurfing and sailing. Lakes Leisure plays a big role in offering support and advice on all aspects of sports development across South Lakeland.
There’s always a gym or village hall close by that will help you get or stay fit. Regular pilates and yoga classes are also held across the area. There’s no reason why adults should have all the fun either! For those of you with children, why not take a trip to your nearest play area? Horse riding is a great way to combine sightseeing with some adventure. Have fun pony trekking outdoors while taking in the beauty of the area.
Perhaps you'd like to try gliding for a first time? Whatever you enjoy doing, our leisure options are endless! Find more information about swimming pools and recreation grounds near you, on our South Lakeland District Council website.
