Huntingtree Park – Halesowen

Huntingtree Park occupies about 9 acres of land between Huntingtree Road and Thornhill Road opposite Huntingtree Primary School. There are a variety of deciduous trees around the perimeter of the park and a small Urban Forest at the corner of Thornhill Road and Huntingtree Road. B63 4HY

The park has full size and junior football pitches. Under the Healthy Towns Project the children’s play area, with junior and infant equipment has been upgraded and one of the tennis courts converted to a Multi Games Court. The remaining tennis court has a permanent net and both courts have been resurfaced.

The football pitch has had a major new drainage system installed and been re-seeded. The new Healthy Hub and activity building is the centre of a variety of activities designed to improve the health of the local community. The Park Activators have an office there and the kitchen and community room are available for planned healthy based activities. Toilets are open during the day. Changing rooms and showers are available for visiting football teams.

The paths have been widened and resurfaced and new seats installed, to provide better accessibility for all users.

Schools and local children’s associations use the park for games activities and picnics, as do family groups. The bowling green area is surrounded by spring flower beds and flowering shrubs, provided by the ‘Friends’ group and planted by local primary school children.

Friends of the Park

The Friends of Huntingtree Park group was formed in 2006 to try to improve the facilities on the park and to change its run down appearance.

We hope that by making physical improvements to the park we will address anti-social behaviour and create a sense of community pride in the park and increase the number of people using the park.

We are a local voluntary group who receive great support for our efforts from the local community, Dudley CVS, Dudley MBC and Green Care
