Movement Park is a Glasgow-based charity that uses sport and movement-based activities to enhance the lives of the local community. Based in our converted warehouse in Whiteinch, Movement Park is an innovative multi-activity facility.
The facility housed over two floors provides a 15 x 13-meter activity space together with an outdoor activity space on the ground level and three multi-discipline rooms on the first floor. Our vast and varied projects and activities provide the local communities a welcoming, inclusive facility to come and practice activities and sports, improving a wide range of skills such as physical literacy, flexibility, fitness, problem solving & decision-making skills, cognitive function, impulse control, cue recognition and creative thinking to encourage and unlock potential. Everything we do has a participant-centered approach in each project, focusing on physical, mental and sociological development to promote more healthy active lifestyles and improved levels of social inclusion.
