A world of arts, games and creativity at Bearwood School Playground, Bearwood Baptist Church & The Common.
YOUNG EXPLORERS - BEARWOOD PRIMARY SCHOOL PLAYGROUND
This is our children’s play space! Open 12-5pm. With Go Play Sandwell bringing a range of playful activities and our very own beach thanks to the lovely folk at Warley Baptist Church. Children can get creative with craft activities provided by Mothership and decorate their own Bearwood Rock to take home or hide in Warley Woods for someone else to discover. Treat your little ones to face painting and an ice cream or let them spend their pocket money on the snack stall kindly provided by St Hilda’s Scout group.
