Wolverhampton’s historic West Park will provide a stunning backdrop to the start and finish of the Cycling Time Trial.
The park, which opened in 1881, is considered to be one of the finest examples of unspoilt Victorian parkland in England, boasting a Grade II listed bandstand, conservatory, tennis courts, bowling greens and a large lake.
As Wolverhampton’s premier open space, West Park has held a Green Flag award for four years in a row and was one of the first parks in the country to set a trend for the provision of areas specifically for sporting activities.
Just a short walk from the city centre and world-famous Molineux Stadium, the 43-acre landscaped park provides a perfect gateway to the city.
West Park, proudly owned by City of Wolverhampton Council, is the perfect place to welcome the very best cyclists from across the Commonwealth.
