One of the most beautiful parks that I see here in England, it is very big and you can walk or go with the bike foe a long time to see all the park completely. You can enter with the car and have different sites to parking your car. Have two or three shops for buy drinks and some food, sites for the children, the donkey sanctuary, one lake with ducks and others birds and a lot of wild animals like rabbits, ravens, etc. 100% recommended if you are visiting Birmingham and love the natural environment, you will forget that you are in the civilization after a few hours inside!

I have visited Sutton Park on numerous occasions and am always surprised by the discovery of another area and aspect to it. It has something to interest every age group. There are numerous walks in this vast and varied park as well as many other activities to suit many tastes. There are parks for children, cafes as well as a Toby carvery which is always busy. The Exmoor ponies are beautiful. You feel as though you are in the countryside rather than in the middle of a residential area.

Every type of natural beauty in one place. I have been twice now, walked around 14 miles and hardly touched the area. Fully patched paths to woodland walks. Pubs to eat lunch. A must go to place for anyone who enjoys the outdoors
