Parks and Green Space
Welcome to Nature in Great Barr
While B43 may seem to be an extension of the sprawling conurbation there is plenty of green space.
The south side of the area borders the Sandwell Valley with the RSPB nature centre with its lakes and walks. The site includes a Visitors Centre, a small car park, a network of footpaths and a number of viewing screens
The area to the north borders the Barr Beacon area with the large Great Barr Park being part of the private Great Barr Hall estate.
On the edge of Walsall and just inside the B43 area is Merrions Wood.
Hidden away in the Hamstead area is the Gorse Farm Wood. Fifteen acres of local nature reserve.
On the other side of the Newton Road is another green space provided by Red House Park - see the main links for more information.
