Volunteers Urgently Needed

The Park Active sessions at Buffery Park have unfortunately had to be paused temporarily due the need for more volunteers to deliver at this park. We are working hard to recruit volunteers for this park and all of our others. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about volunteering by emailing healthy.places@dudley.gov.uk

Let’s get active in our local parks. FREE weekly outdoor fitness sessions for groups of all abilities.

Qualified instructors take the group through a 45-minute outdoor activity session. Everyone is able to work at their own level and enjoy the benefits of exercising outdoors. These circuit-based sessions are family-friendly, fun and suit all ages and abilities. As the sessions are outdoors they are subject to weather conditions, sessions may be cancelled in inclement weather.

The Park Active project is also recruiting and training volunteers to deliver the weekly outdoor community workouts.

Extending the offer from our existing four healthy hub sites, which each hold a timetable of activity sessions, these weekly sessions take place at five new parks across the borough:

At Stevens Park, Wollescote on Saturdays

9:30 to 10:15 am

(meet at the upper car park)

At Buffery Park, Kates Hill on Saturdays

Paused, to be reviewed Spring

(meet outside the Paradise Centre).

At Abbey Street Rec, Gornal on Saturdays

10:00 to 10:45 am

(meet at the children’s play area).

At Stevens Park, Quarry Bank on Sundays

11:00 to 11:45 am

(meet by the outdoor gym).

At Grange Park, Dudley on Sundays

10:00 to 10:45 am

(meet at the pavilion)

No additional equipment is required, just turn up in suitable clothing and footwear and bring a drink.

No need to book just turn up. You will need to let the volunteers know of any health conditions you have that might affect how you take part in the session.
