The Cosy Corner Day Nursery went along to the Huntingtree Hub for a storytelling morning with Kirsten. Everyone had so much fun learning about the Platinum Jubilee and some of the special people that help out at the palace. The children made their own crowns and even went on a scavenger hunt.


December 2021

Our Green Flag status has been renewed for 2021/22 due in no small part to the unstinting efforts of our voluntary litter-pickers who are on the park early every morning keeping the park tidy and reporting any areas requiring attention.
Jean Wythes our senior litter-picker received a Kindness Award at a Borough-wide ceremony acknowledging her long-standing contribution to the Park.

Kirsten joined a room full of toddlers to tell an Autumn story about Lottie the leaf, building up courage to jump from her tree and join her colleagues on the forest floor.
From the feedback we got, the whole morning was ‘fabulous’.

Huntingtree Park

Huntingtree Park is situated in the residential area of Hasbury, a short distance from Halesowen Town Centre. The park occupies about 9 acres of land between Huntingtree Road and Thornhill Road opposite Huntingtree Primary School. More details including a map are available on the Park page.
The Friends of Huntingtree Park group was formed in 2006 to improve the park and change its run down appearance. After a Consultation Day with local residents in 2008, a Masterplan of improvements was approved by Dudley MBC.
We believe that by making improvements to the park we will address anti-social behaviour, create a sense of community pride in the park and increase the number of people using the amenities.
We are a voluntary group who receive great support for our efforts from the local community, Dudley CVS, Dudley MBC and GreenCare.

Exercise & Socialise

Tuesday 1pm to 3pm

The Exercise & Socialise Group

The exercise and socialise group meet at 1pm for a short walk in and around the park returning for a welcome ‘cuppa’ and an opportunity to knit, sew and chat.
All age groups are welcome to join and will receive a warm welcome.

Health Walks

Thursday 10am

Enjoyable walks on a Thursday morning through the scenic, historic landscapes of Lutley, Uffmoor and adjacent localities.
Walkers follow the ups and downs of undulating terrain to maintain personal fitness whilst enjoying distant views and diversities of flora and wildlife.
Routes vary from week to week but most trails involve climbing over stiles and negotiating stretches of seasonal mud, puddles, boggy, rough or loose ground. Sensible footwear, clothing and a drink is essential.
