In 1930 Walsall Council received a sum of £8,000 from the local miners welfare fund. The miners specified that the money was for the provision of a recreation or pleasure ground. As a result Leamore Park came into being.
The park has stayed true to its roots. Today, you can enjoy many activities, including football, tennis, and bowls.
