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.

Netherton Park Overview:

Welcome to Netherton Park, the most central of Dudley’s four Healthy hubs. The hubs 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 Netherton Park? The team of onsite 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. The park also is very close to other great walking destinations such as the Dudley No.2 canal and Bumble Hole Nature reserve. For those who enjoy sports, there are two football pitches and a multi use games area that can be used for a variety of sports. If you add in the children’s play area 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.
