Stevens Park offers extensive recreational facilities and many areas of managed grass, over its sweeping landscape. The park hosts spectacular views to surrounding areas and catches the stunning setting sun just perfectly.
At approximately 7 hectare in size the park has large areas of open flat grass, ideal for team games, along with smaller shaded and un-shaded areas perfect for picnics and leisure activities. One of these large areas is utilised as a football pitch, by a variety of teams. The additional large grassed area has a Multi-Use Games Area and Skate Park (both of which were installed in 2007), a band stand and a children's play area.
The Quarry Bank War Memorial was erected to commemorate around 300 Quarry Bank people that lost their lives in World War One and World War Two.
Dudley Council has been successful in gaining £1.4 million National Lottery funding for important restoration and development work starting on site this summer. Match funding from the council has extended the budget to £1.8 million.
The funding, which has been awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund, will be used to restore the footpaths, entrances, bandstand and peace gardens.

Stakeholders and members of the public have been involved in the ideas and proposals for the site. The Friends of Stevens Park Quarry Bank have been closely involved in the project since it began.
Stevens Park has a small active Friends Group which was formally established when members of the local community 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.
