One of the UK gardens

This is probably the most exciting time for the park since it was opened in 1895. We have been awarded a £4.5 million-pound grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Parks For People grant with the remaining balance from funded by Sandwell Council.

The plans include: 

Restoring the memorial to James Chance which is a Grade II-listed structure built in 1897 
Refurbishing the wall and piers and recreating gates and railings at the entrance gateways in West Park Road and Victoria Road
Restoration of the drinking fountain
Constructing a new pavilion
Creating a new events area
Constructing a new boathouse feature
Upgrading the multi-use games area to include tennis courts
Nature conversation improvements including woodland, grassland and wetland works
New outdoor gym equipment
Restoring the airmen’s memorial where a plane crashed in 1944
The new pavilion will form the centrepiece of the restoration and the building will have toilets, a café, seating area and community areas that will be used for events and activities.
