There are a host of parks to visit throughout the area, including Sanders Park and The Rec in Bromsgrove, play areas in Charford, Sidemoor and other areas, including St Chad’s Park in Rubery, the Lickey Hills and Waseley Hills country parks and Victoria Common in Northfield.

Museums and other tourist attractions are pulling out all the stops to ensure children of all ages are kept busy and – with the cost-of-living crisis – that there is something for all budgets.
