Thornes Park trim trail


The trail can be used by adults and children to get fit and keep fit. A sign at each point shows which exercise to take with the suggested number of repetitions.

The trail is graded and colour coded:

  • Red - Beginner
  • Blue - Intermediate
  • Yellow - Expert

Follow the route jogging between points. Be careful not to overdo things if you’re not yet fit.


If you're looking for quality time to workout or attend one of our classes, you can book your child into our creche. You can then relax and enjoy your session in the knowledge that your child is being well cared for. Creche workers are available to look after your tiny tots aged 6 months to 5 years.

We provide a warm and relaxed setting where your child will be made to feel happy and safe while they play and have fun with a wide range of play activities.

Current opening times

Tuesday: 10 - 11am
Thursday: 10 - 11am  

Booking is essential and costs £2.05 per child.

We also have a number of classes where your child can accompany you - please ask your centre manager for further details.
