Parks & Open Spaces

Bromsgrove has over 70 parks and open spaces, these range from small pretty gardens for sitting and relaxing, woodland areas for long walks and rambling to formal town parks with facilities such as bowling greens, skate parks, tennis courts, football pitches, children's play areas and a bandstand.

Bromsgrove Council is committed to top quality park maintenance and management and have been awarded the nationally prestigious Green Flag Award for Sanders Park for the Fifth year running (2010). We aim to provide a range of facilities at a high standard to ensure that the differing demands and aspirations of users are catered for to help people enjoy and appreciate their recreational experience. Our aims are as follows:-

  • Access for all ~ ensuring there are opportunities available to all sections of the community to enjoy the countryside.
  • Community Involvement ~ Sanders Park has a Friends of Sanders Parks Group in addition to several of the allotments having tenant associations, we also regularly consult with local residents at events via consultation sheets and questionnaires.
  • Contribute and promote the associated health and well being qualities associated with countryside recreation activities through our volunteer lead walks from Sanders Park and the activities laid on in Sanders and Rubery for school children during the holidays.

Royal Hunters Walks

Gateway to Bromsgrove's rural heritage. Travel back in time from the very heart of the bustling Bromsgrove to the hunting forests of the middle ages along a series of well-marked circular walks that begin in the centre of the town.  These walks travel the lanes, byways, medieval tracks and footpaths of the surrounding countryside, exploring ancient woodlands, local legends, flower rich meadows, nature reserves, sites of special scientific interest and the wealth of landscape and countryside heritage that this part of Worcestershire has to offer.
