Barnford Park, nestled in the heart of Oldbury, provides a delightful experience for its visitors. The Park comprises open areas of grass within a formal mature tree structure of linear avenues and small groups and is a site of local importance for nature conservation due to the alpine plants it supports. With its traditional parkland character, multi use games area, children's play areas, rose gardens, maze, skate/bike track and gym equipment, the park accommodates a diverse range of formal and informal activities. The park houses 'Pudding rock'- a significant geological feature comprising a mixture of stone and volcanic material formed 300 million years ago.
The walk is dog-friendly, but it is expected that dogs are kept on leads at all times.
This friendly walk takes in much of the park on a circular route starting at the entrance of Stepway Wellbeing Centre, Pound Road (Merton Close) B68 8NG. There are benches along the route which provide ample opportunities to rest.
By car: There is a car park at Stepway Wellbeing centre but there is also parking on the road on Merton Close.
