Morton Stanley Park


The park

The 95 acres of Morton Stanley Park offer a rich mosaic of natural habitats and things to do, amidst a historic landscape of open mown grass, veteran trees and mature hedgerows.

Did you know? Before it was a park, the land was a farm and cottage owned by local industrialist William Morton Stanley (1840-1924).

Morton Stanley, local needle maker turned full time farmer, left it in his will to be ‘used and applied at all times hereafter as a Park for the use of the inhabitants of the Urban district of Redditch and the Parish of Webheath and to be called the Morton Stanley Park’.

Rich ponds, remnant orchards and managed wildflower meadows complement the rich views, with the distant Malvern's to the west and Walkwood Coppice to the south, complete with woodland walks.
