Huntingtree Park in Halesowen is one of four Healthy Hubs in Dudley. The park offers an activity centre, outdoor gym, children's play area, bowling green, tennis court, football pitch and free off-road parking.
As part of the Healthy Towns project it has benefited from investment including; the upgrade of equipment in the children's play area, creation of a multi-use games court, resurfacing of the tennis court and a new drainage system for the football pitch. The paths have been widened and resurfaced and new seats installed, to provide better accessibility for all users. In addition the building of a new Healthy Hub and activity centre provides a variety of activities designed to improve the health of our local community.
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.
The Healthy Hub employ park activators who co-ordinate and run a range of exercise sessions for people of all ages and abilities to join. These are free of charge unless otherwise stated.
Example activities include: after school club (4-11 years), health walks, social and light exercise, functional fitness and buggy walks. For further details and the full class timetable visit Healthy Hubs below.
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.
Huntingtree Park is situated in the residential district of Hasbury, a twenty minute walk from Halesowen Town Centre.
There is a small car park but most parking is based on the perimeter roads at the owners own risk.
The 417 and 244 buses run up to the park from Halesowen Bus Station at twenty minute intervals.
