Free parking and water sports hire for ‘bACTIVE’ members

THE ANGUS Council ‘bACTIVE’ membership scheme, which gives unlimited use of the council’s sports and leisure facilities for a monthly fee, is now adding free parking at Crombie and Monikie country parks and free water sports hire into the package.

bACTIVE members can apply for a car parking season ticket, valued at £57, for Crombie and Monikie. Parking charges commence at both venues during the weekend of March 30 and 31.

The Country Parks, Crombie, Forfar Loch and Monikie with their open bodies of water, woodlands and parkland, are ideal locations for a visit to the countryside.

All the sites have paths and trails suitable for exercising including walking, jogging and orienteering. In addition, Monikie Country Park offers a range of water sports hire and instruction in windsurfing, sailing, kayaking and canoeing. bACTIVE members can hire out these craft free, but must be booked in advance. Watersports hire commences 4 May and runs through to September 30.
