Buffery Paradise Centre

The Buffery Paradise Centre, formerly a Sons of Rest Building, has been renovated and is now a community facility, available for hire through the Friends of Buffery Park Group.  (There is a small fee). 

Grazebrook Memorial

This section of the park has open areas of amenity grass and small shaded woodland. There is currently an ongoing project to improve footpaths, seating, signage and entrance points funded by The Friends of Buffery Park and external funding.

The memorial was placed in the centre of the park to pay tribute to soldiers who served and died for their country during the Great War. The cross was damaged by lightning and removed in 1960s. It was renovated to its original design in 2016.

History

Buffery Park used to hold the Buffery Park Conservatory which was a central feature of the park for many years. The conservatory provided plants to be enjoyed by visitors and pot plants for use in the Dudley Borough Mayor Making and other civic events. There are many old stories about the park and the conservatory, one even describing pineapples and parrots being cultivated.

Friends of Buffery Park

This Park has an active Friends Group, Friends and Residents of Buffery Park.  The group was established in 2001 when four members of the local community that volunteered to start discussions on ways of improving and regenerating the park to its full potential and encourage increased public use.

The group are always recruiting new members, to assist with future plans and events.
