Warley Woods provides a unique recreational experience with hopefully something on offer for everyone. Here are some of the organised activities that take place in the Woods:
Warley Woods is a popular area for people from the local community to exercise their dogs. With wide open spaces, dogs can stretch their legs while their companions (humans) can socialise with other dog enthusiasts. Facilities for dog waste are located throughout the park to encourage responsible dog ownership. The Trust offers a membership scheme, called Warley Woof, where members are offered access to specially arranged seminars and occasional training events.
Warley Woods has a popular 9-hole golf course that is widely used by local golfers. To find out more about playing a round of golf or to join a golfing group contact the golf shop located in the Pavilion on Lightwoods Hill on 0121 429 2440 or click here.
With trails winding through impressive woodlands and open meadows, Warley Woods is a popular place for people to ramble and enjoy the peace and tranquillity that is offered by this green space nestled in a heavily urbanised area. Come and see for yourself the beauty that is Warley Woods and reap the health benefits of rambling.
There are regular health walks in the woods organised by Sandwell Stride. These are held every Thursday morning. Meet at the Pavilion at 10 am.
Runners in the Woods
A running club, Warley Woods Pacers, currently meets for a long run at the Pavilion every:

- Saturday and Sunday morning at 9.30am
Other physical activities
Many children and adults alike use Warley Woods to play football, to cycle, to jog along the trails, or to sledge on snowy days. With 100 acres there is plenty of space to get some exercise in a beautiful setting.
