COVID19 Update

All Park Activator and Volunteer led activities across the four Healthy Hub sites are currently cancelled in order to comply with current government guidance around social distancing to slow the spread of Covid19 and protect our vulnerable communities. We will be updating the website once the sessions re-start. Please continue to use the parks to keep active but remember to follow social distancing guidelines by keeping 2 meters away from others.

Mary Stevens Park Overview:

Welcome to Mary Stevens Park in Stourbridge. It is one of four of Dudley’s Healthy hubs, which aim to provide the community with outdoor venues where people of all ages and abilities can come along to get active and have fun in a safe, pleasant outdoor environment.

What can I do at Mary Stevens Park?

The team of activators deliver a range of exercise sessions for people of different ages and abilities to join in with. These are listed in the timetable, please feel free to contact the team for more details on any individual session.

If you don’t want to take part in group activities, the park has a 15 station outdoor gym that is free for anyone to use, and our signage boards show walking routes around the park that you can do whenever suits you. For those who enjoy sports, there are tennis courts, a multi use games area, and a bowling green onsite.

There is an onsite heritage ranger, Deborah Merrick, in addition to the activator team. The heritage ranger has overseen a programme of improvements and restoration to the park and a programme of activities onsite. These are not listed on the timetable, but are available through contacting Deborah (see below for contact details)

If you add in the children’s play area (including a water play area in the summer), the Heath Pool with it’s range of wildlife and the onsite cafe there really is something for all the family to do. We hope you enjoy all that the park has to offer.

The Parks Development team are available to support park friends groups and other community groups who wish to use and improve the site.
