There are quite a few off road paths in the city. Follow the river from Jesus Green right out to Stourbridge Common. You could walk or cycle with the family, stopping off on the way. There will be links to family friendly walks when these are updated. Until then, have a look at the Cambridge Evening News List on this link from last year, it has most of the nice local walks.

for all seasons

There are many outdoor events, especially in the summer on Parker’s Piece and fairs on Midsummer Common. Local festivals such as Cherry Hinton are fun days out. Or you could see the historical rowing boat ‘bumps’ earlier in the year, or dragon boat races too. Some may not happen this year due to Covid restrictions, however most are outdoors and are going ahead.
