Mary Stevens Park is a well loved community asset in Stourbridge. The park receives approximately 1 million visitors per year. Dudley Council ha just completed a heritage lottery project which has involved £3.1 million being invested in improvements to the park.

The park is a hive of activity throughout the year, with daily health and fitness activities, community group events and regular heritage and wildlife activities. Mary Stevens Park was gifted to the people of Stourbridge in 1931 by Ernest Stevens and has deed of gift restrictions in place.
