Warley Woods

1 miles (2 km)

This 100 acre park is located in the Smethwick area of Birmingham.
It is a Green Flag award winning community park and in 2012 it was voted the nation's 2nd favourite park. The woods are the perfect place for a peaceful walk with beautiful woodland, nature trails and a wildflower area. Look out for wildlife which includes Green woodpecker, Chiff chaff and Fieldfare as you make your way around the site. The park also contains a popular nine hole golf course, a cafe and a shop.
Just to the south east there's also Lightwoods House and Park. Here you'll find an 18th century mansion surrounded by pleasant parkland. In the park there's a walled garden called "The Shakespeare Garden" with benches, ponds and flower beds. Just cross the road to the south and you can explore this park too.

Dog Walking

The trails in the park are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably see other owners on a fine day.
