Nestled between homes in Astwood Bank, Overdale Park is a park of two halves.
Its formal half features mown expanses of grass, footpaths and play equipment, and its nature habitat half includes a natural pond with viewing platform.
The whole park is complemented by a remnant orchard and a variety of trees, shrub beds and mature hedgerows – all in an open environment with great visibility.
It’s one part of Redditch’s over 750 hectares of freely accessible parks, open spaces, allotments, nature reserves, woodlands and landscaped amenity areas - that’s over 1850 acres, or more than a thousand football pitches!
Water Safety Management
RBC has developed a new Water Safety Policy in collaboration with key partners such as Rospa, the Emergency Services and Local Schools. This Policy helps support the National Water Safety Forum’s ‘UK Drowning Prevention Strategy 2016 – 2026’ to prevent accidental drowning fatalities in the UK by working in partnership to ensure consistent guidance for the safe enjoyment and management of activities in, on and around water.
