The Leisure and Wellbeing Centre

 

The park has been home to Handsworth Leisure Centre since the early 1980s.

A late 20th Century sports centre of concrete block and coloured metal construction stands approximately on the site of the late 18th century Grove House. The sports centre is well-screened from the lower areas of the west park by ornamental trees and shrubs, some of which survive from the 19th century pleasure grounds associated with Grove or Park House.

Along with all of the other extensive landscape works to revive the park in the early 2000s, the project included the Leisure Centre extension. It is a robust and bold extension, that brings a clear identity to the main entrance and provides an improved reception area, security and access facilities. Source
