I spent a lot of summers here as a kid. There is unbelievable amounts of space. Good for runners on or off road, golf courses, plenty of children's play areas. 3 different restaurants. Packed with history. All different terrains. You could go for a run, a walk, a bike ride, take the kids, walk around with the other half. It's just a great place and a really welcome break from Birminghams concrete jungle.

It's a beautiful spot away from all the hustle and bustle of the towns and cities. The park is clean and the public areas are well maintained. It's lovely to see the wildlife being left to roam freely. Theres a couple of places to get some drinks or a snack if you don't want to carry it around the whole time. Plenty of places to park and sit for a picnic, there is a parking charge in peak times which I believe is March/April to September around £3 for the day. Great place to walk, run or ride no matter your age or ability there will be a route to take and spot to explore.

Beautiful green space with many lakes and wooded areas. There is a playground for children as well as mini golf and boating activities. Two cafés are available plus a Toby Carvery. A popular place for families and dog walkers. Interesting historical trails and plenty of walking routes to be taken around the park. A good place to see wildlife - birds and woodland creatures - or there is a donkey sanctuary close to the main entrance from the town.
