The ‘Exploring Ballinasloe and Surrounding Areas’ Project is an initiative of the Ballinasloe Fit Town project together with Galway Sports Partnership and Galway County Council and has been made possible with the support of Healthy Ireland and Fit Town funding. The aim of the project is to continue our journey in promoting the health and wellbeing of our community and in doing so, to create more awareness of the rich natural landscape, biodiversity, heritage, strategic location and infrastructure that Ballinasloe enjoys.

The benefits of exercise to our overall health and wellbeing (both physical and mental health) is well documented. There is no denying our modern lifestyles place many demands on us and the challenge for many is to find time to incorporate exercise into our everyday life.
