A small, pretty park with a good play area, picnic tables and the Bourn Brook running through the middle.
It's lovely in the spring, when crocuses carpet the borders. In the summer, children go stream-dipping and the bridge affords a great vantage point for playing pooh-sticks.
Much-used by dog-walkers, there is a small carpark at the back, off Selly Oak Road. There is a bowling green and three free tennis courts. The park is sometimes used by visitors to Cadbury World nearby. There are no other facilities.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
A pretty park opposite Bournville Green and Cadbury World.
The playground has three picnic tables, a slide and climbing frame, swings, a rocking Landrover (!), and a see-saw.
The picturesque Bourne Brook weaves its way through the park, shallow enough to paddle in on hot days. There are two bridges, providing the perfect vantage points for playing Pooh sticks.
