Research has shown the important link between physical health and mental health and Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park provides high quality sport and activity facilities, and green open spaces for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to improve their health and wellbeing.
From world class sports facilities to free run routes, cycle paths and a cricket pitch there are activities available for everyone.
We work closely with Move More Sheffield to encourage Sheffield to become the most active city in the UK.
The catalyst for Move More was the establishment of the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine (NCSEM), an Olympic Legacy programme.
The objective of the NCSEM Sheffield is to create a culture of physical activity to improve the population’s health.
Since it began it has commissioned three locations across Sheffield where medical intervention and physical activity are combined.
The Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre on Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is the research hub for NCSEM Sheffield.
