Willenhall Memorial Park was created in the early 1920s to commemorate the many people who died in the Great War. The Park was formed out of 22ha of derelict former mining land to the west of Willenhall Town Centre. Afforestation of the pit mounds was carried out by unemployed servicemen returning from the war.
The resulting woodland is now an attractive backdrop to the Park’s many facilities; which include a bandstand, bowling green, children’s play area, fishing pool and community pavilion.
Adjoining the northwest entrance to the Park is Fibbersley Local Nature Reserve, a 12.89 ha expanse of land on former mine workings that is now a haven for wildlife. Health walks take place three times a week from the park pavilion, and follow a variety of circular trails through the Park and Nature Reserve.
