- About the park
This popular community park has benefitted from a four-stage renovation project, which has boosted the facilities on offer.
As well as providing large open spaces for cricket, football and other sports, there are 2 children’s play areas which feature the latest equipment in a safe environment, including climbing frames.
There is also a 2 kilometre circular route around the park, making it ideal for walkers and joggers.
In 2014 the park received Queen Elizabeth II Fields In Trust status, helping to preserve its open spaces for generations to come.
In addition, Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trusts run free weekly “nature tots” sessions at the park, which are open to all pre-schoolers and encourage a love of wildlife.
