Royal Parks sports manager Jill Osleger said: "The key to making exercise a part of your life is finding something you really enjoy. If exercise becomes a chore, you’ll inevitably find yourself making excuses to avoid it.
Other activities available in the parks include golf, kite boarding, aerobics, yoga and pilates. Osleger added: "There is something for everyone, of all ages and abilities."
A number of royal parks will play host to competitions during the Olympics including equestrian events and the modern pentathlon in Greenwich Park, beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade Ground near St James Park and triathlon and marathon swimming in Hyde Park.
