What's on

Dudley Council offers a range of family friendly activities in our parks and nature reserves. The activities include seasonal sessions for Halloween, Christmas and Easter as well as nature trails, craft workshops and much more.

Health and progression walks

All our health walks are delivered in conjunction with Walking for Health - a national initiative that helps people access short, free and friendly health walks in their local area. Our progression walks are harder and are longer in duration, over 90 minutes.

Many of our walks are possible that to the dedication and hard for of our volunteer walk leaders.
