West Park (with Inclusive Play Area)

Is a fine example of a Victorian municipal park and was one of the best in the country to set a trend for the provision of areas for specific sporting activities (originally bowls and archery). The park is considered to be one of the best, unspoilt examples of a Victorian park left in England and is Wolverhampton's premier open space.

The park is 17 hectares (roughly 43 acres) in area (including its lake) and provides a beautifully landscaped green space within a ten minute walk of Wolverhampton City Centre. 

West Park provide a range of play equipment to cater for all ages and to provide stimulating, challenging apparatus to help keep Wolverhampton's children fit and healthy.

Efforts are made to provide play opportunities for children with disabilities as well as able-bodied children. Level approach pathways, wheelchair accessible gateways and the use of appropriate contrasting colours for ease of visibility are all important factors in ensuring accessibility for children with disabilities.  For more information about accessible play areas in Wolverhampton please click here.
