Active NAtion

At the Outdoor Sports Centre we are proud to offer a wide range of facilities and spaces to the community in Southampton and the surrounding areas. We’re used for a variety of reasons by a range of individuals and organisations. As a charity, on a mission to persuade the nation to be active, we encourage the use of the sports centre for both structured and unstructured activity.   

Any group using the Sports Centre facilities or grounds must book in advance. To ensure everyone's enjoyment we have a few simple rules that all users need to follow.



  • Fires and barbeques are not permitted
  • Use of metal detectors is not permitted
  • Please put litter in bins, or ideally take it home
  • Don’t leave waste food; it can attract rats
  • Don’t take cuttings from existing plants or shrubs
  • Don’t feed the wildlife; they will survive better if they find their own food
  • Don’t dump garden waste or damage banks and plants as these are criminal offences and can lead to prosecution
  • Please let us know of anything requiring attention following your visit
  • Active Nation accepts no liability for any loss or damage caused to persons or property

Motorised Vehicles

  • Only motorised vehicles used by authorised personnel are permitted
  • Authorised vehicles must keep below 5mph at all times


  • Cyclists must remain on marked paths at all times
  • Cyclists must give priority to pedestrians and be careful when passing dogs
  • Please use your lights at night

Dog owners
