About Us 

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.

 

OUR VISION - A cohesive community where physical activity, wellbeing and social engagement is a vital part of everyday life.                           

 OUR MISSION - To create a thriving community through the establishment of a hub that is warm and welcoming, allowing creative opportunities to move more and sit less; to develop friendships; experience engagement; and offer many chances for personal and social development.

How WE LIKE TO THINK

THERE WILL BE OBSTACLES

THERE WILL BE DOUBTERS

THERE WILL BE MISTAKES

BUT WITH HARD WORK

THERE ARE NO LIMITS.
