At the same time why not enjoy a walk at this wonderful Country Park, whether you are a keen rambler, or just want to go for a walk with the dog or family, with 660 acres to walk round, you can go for a quiet stroll in pleasant surroundings through woods, farmland and by pools and streams. Many of our footpaths are surfaced, providing access for all, though many are left as natural tracks to provide a sense of a real countryside. There is a trails map which shows the main footpaths through the Country Park and adjacent areas.

To round off your trip enjoy a visit to Sandwell Park Farm, (there is a separate entry charge for this) a fully restored working Victorian farm with grazing meadows, a traditional farmyard, walled kitchen gardens, Grade II listed buildings, a small museum and award-winning tea rooms to provide a perfect day out.
