Sanders Park

Sanders Park is Bromsgrove’s Premier Park which attracts over 350,000 visitors per year.

The park, located close to the town centre of Bromsgrove, was opened in 1968 and covers 16.3 hectares to the west of Bromsgrove linking to countryside beyond. The area of Sanders Park and the small valley of the Battlefield Brook has for centuries been an important green space for the town. In the area of the park by Watt Close there used to be an Elizabethan water mill powered by the Battlefield Brook. This was converted in the late eighteenth century to one of the first cotton spinning factories in England finally ending its life as the first open air swimming pool in the area which is now a water feature in the park.

Sensory Garden

We are delighted announce the Rotary Club have kindly donated funding for a new sensory garden in Sanders Park.  This will be a fantastic garden for all ages groups to enjoy.

After careful consideration it was decided that the best suited location for the garden would be the area in front of the information office, unfortunately this does mean the facility will replace the existing putting green.  However, we are currently investigating the opportunity to introduce a temporary crazy golf facility for the summer period and think this will provide a more exciting challenge to everyone. 

The new sensory garden will include water rills, sensory planting and informal pathways and seating and give all users the opportunity to enjoy this space informally as play or as a tranquil setting.......

More about Sanders Park

It is thought that there are references to the landscape of Battlefield Brook Valley and what is now Sanders Park in the poems of the renowned poet and scholar A.E.Housman.

Sanders Park was named after two sisters who bequeathed the site to Bromsgrove District Council to be used for the health, relaxation and wellbeing of the people of Bromsgrove. The District Council manages the park to meet the modern day needs of the local community.

The park offers a wide range of facilities for informal and formal recreation as well as a varied event programmes throughout the year. These facilities include a flat outdoor bowling green, two tennis courts, putting green, outdoor skate park, two Multi Use Games areas and a state of the art children's play area, Jubilee Bandstand and a pavilion housing a cafe, information desk, ladies, gents and disabled toilets.
