We are regular visitors to Sandwell Valley Park, a good level path for walking around Swan Pool, Forge Mill Farm and the Priory ruins are worth a visit. The RSPB have a facility where you can have a coffee and watch the birds.

This place is just brilliant. Take a walk around swan pool, and onto Sandwell valley via the priory and onto the park farm, forge mill farm down the road and the excellent playground. We had a brilliant cold walk and couldn’t have been happier!

We enjoyed some pleasant afternoons here during the long hot summer. The crazy golf is fun, but would benefit from a bit of TLC. There's an outdoor gym that is free. A boating pool with a small fee for boats; adventure playground with high wire...More
