On a hot summer’s day we all love a paddle and Wolverhampton is home to two superb outdoor paddling pools and one of them is at East Park.
At our historic East Park there’s not just the free paddling pool for families to enjoy in the summer months – we’ve got loads of year-round outdoor facilities too.
There are two great children’s play areas, a cycle speedway track, baseball courts, tennis courts and football pitches. And of course you can also just walk around the park’s 18 hectares and enjoy its lovely green space, established trees and pathways all just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We’ve also got summer concerts in our restored Victorian bandstand.
Last year we celebrated its restoration following a £1.5 million transformation with support from a Heritage Lottery grant which has helped bring it back to its former glory. We know lots of people love the park because so many were involved in its restoration.
