Willenhall Memorial Park

The site was created in the 1920s by unemployed ex-servicemen as a tribute to locals who lost their lives in the First World War.

The park has been regenerated by the local community and there is a Friends of Willenhall memorial park group. In 2008 the park received a Green Flag award, which it holds to this day.

Today, you can enjoy a wide variety of trees, plants and shrubs and a range of facilities.
