Park is so named because it contains three parks: West, Compton and Bantock. It is bounded by the Ring Road, Horden Road and Merridale Road, Finchfield Road and the canal. It contains the three secondary schools on Compton Park and four junior schools: St Jude’s, The Giffard, St Andrew’s and West Park. The City of Wolverhampton College is in the ward, as is the commercial and retail centre of Chapel Ash.
Key issues in Park include:
- Higher education
- Cost of living
Park is a strong Labour ward.
