Covering 143 acres, including the Halesowen Golf Club, Leasowes Park is considered one of the most influential natural landscapes of the 18th century, having been unusually designed by a poet! (William Shenstone, if you're interested!) The land consists of steeply wooded hillsides, scenic rolling grasslands, small clear lakes and streams intersecting 2 narrow valleys. It's natural and wild, isolated and utterly without facility: great for getting back to basics for a proper old school family adventure! Have a hike, have a mini beast beast safari, or have the hide and seek tournament of your lives!
This cherished public space is a little bit of wilderness in a heavily industrialised area, a much used and loved place for family recreation. There are a few features to find like the bridge over the water feature, but by and large you'll find nothing but green here. Lovely!
