I have to say as much as people think west Bromwich is a bit dank and dull , then you would be wrong , we have a wounderfull valley with two lakes just situated off the Newton road .
On one of the lakes people like to take their boats out or you can hire , but the other lake is in use for birds and wildlife . it is such a vast area and at the top of the valley there is a nature reserve for all the bird watchers, only dont go very late at night as some off the area has another form of bird watching.
people ride their horses ,bikes or just take a walk.
Along the root you will come across differnet farms .
Sandwell park farm has its own visitors centre with loads of farm animals.
Eventually after your treck cause,,, you cant treck no more then take a seat in West Bromwich Park and enjoy an ice cream, they also have a lake here and fishing has taken place , park for kids . outside the gate you will venture into West Bromwich

The Hawthorns is home to West Bromwich Albion. It's a smal ground with a current all seater capacity of just 26, 272 and the Baggies have been playing here for over 100 years.
The away support currently is put behind the goal in the Smethwick End.
Access to the ground is pretty reasonable, if you arrive early, and the views are fine.
The busy city centre of Birmingham is only a taxi ride away, so we usually have a couple of pints on Broad street, and then hail down a cab to the Hawthorns.
My last trip to the Hawthorns was in May 2013, WBA v Manchester United. The last game of the season, where United won their 20 league title. It was a right family affair for me, with my two nephews being WBA mascots for the day. They are mad Baggies fans and have season tickets along with their Mum and Dad. Also it was my lads first ever football match at 19 months, along with his namesakes, Alex Ferguson's last match.
A memorable match all round 5-5 the final score!

Manchester City 0 - 0 West Brom 26th December 2011
Manchester City won 2-1 with 10 men!!! 20th October 2012.
Anyway, the stadium (The Hawthorn) caters well for away supporters. There is a kiosk selling beer and larger, aswell as soft drinks, pies, chips, crisps and chocolate bars.
The seats are not too cramped together, so we had space stood up watching the match without being on top of each other.
At this ground, they open the doors at half time and let those who want to go out for a cigarette go out. This is the only ground I have evr been to that does this. If you do go outside at half time, you are still kept in an area and cannot move around the stadium.
If it rained, you would get soaked if sat on the forst 20 rows!
Equipment: Your ticket, your passion, your voice, your soul.

West Bromwich Albion is the football team i support, the greatest team in the world!!. I go to all the home games to cheer on the lads in blue and white stripes. W.B.A were very successful a few decades ago and now we are too good for Division 1 but cant quite hold our own in the Premiership. As i write we are 4th In Division 1 and looking for promotion back to the premiership where we belong.
There is a great rivalry between Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa.I am looking forward to seeing us play Wolves as we have avoided each other the last few years as we were in different leagues 2 seasons ago 'The Baggies' as they are also known pulled off the Great Escape on the last day of the season to survive relegation from the premiership. We needed to win our final home game and hope the 3 teams around us didnt win. We did it and it was an amazing day.
Equipment: If you have never been to a football match before i suggest you try and watch a match at The Hawthorns, our home stadium. The atmosphere is electric when the crowd are in full voice.
So what are you waiting for? Get to the Albion and cheer on the Baggies!!
Boing Boing Baggies Baggies!!

West Bromwich Albion are one of Aston Villas` main local rivals and there is always a great atmosphere when they play each other.
It costs £28 for away supporters and £3 for a programme.
Villa played them today and were a little bit lucky to come away with a 1-1 draw (Aug 2004)
Equipment: To watch the match the only equipment you really need is a good strong voice to sing your club`s songs and encourage the team and your eyes to actually watch the game, some people do take a pair of binoculars if they sit far from the pitch.
Apart from the above the club s encourage you to buy their merchandise to enhance your matchday experience, you can buy virtually anything from hats and scarfs to the full blown replica kit, which generally is updated annually.
