Living Figueira 12 months a year

What to do in Figueira da Foz in summer 2023: Sports!



Four months of sport, 13 modalities for all audiences, in the most varied places of the city, is what the Municipality of Figueiredo proposes with another edition of the Municipal Sports Program for All (PMDT).

The program starts on June 17 and runs until September 30with activities spread over 119 sessions, taking place in various locations in Figueira da Foz: Estrado da Praia, Jardim Dr. Fernando Traqueia, Praia da Cova, Marina de Recreio, Serra da Boa Viagem, Praça da Europa, Parque Urbano de Lares, Praça João Ataíde and other spaces open to the resident and visiting community.

The PMDT, developed by the Youth and Sports Service of CMFF, results from partnerships with 11 public and private entities in the municipality and aims to “promote physical exercise and maintain transversality to all audiences, maintaining a varied offer of sports activities”.

This year the focus will be on “nature sports”including trail running initiation in Serra da Boa Viagem, as well as in the “fitness, dance and wellness sports”with the introduction of the “walk & run” mode, “guided by a municipal coach with international recognition in the world of athletics”, as well as outdoor Yoga and Chi Kung. Water sports and racquet sports are also part of this program.

In this 4th edition, assures note from the City Council, “the offer for the public with other needs is maintained and reinforced, with surfing, horseback riding, dance and orienteering. According to the Municipality, “It is in the dynamics of collaboration that the PMDPT, with each passing year, generates a special impulse, whether from the perspective of physical exercise, or even in the animation of the spaces themselves, allowing Figueira da Foz to gain, more and more, expression and positioning in the panorama of healthy and happy cities”.

Participation in the activities is subject to prior registration with each partner of the municipality, with the purpose of covering personal accidents.
