I love this place. We went today for a little pootle and there is work underway (e.g. grass being laid) It'll be lovely, I'm sure, when it's finished. A total gem.

A beautiful garden in the centre of Birmingham. We enjoyed pond dipping and looking round the gardens. Staff and volunteers are friendly and my little one enjoyed the play facilities.

I attended a 4 year olds birthday party. It was definitely the best venue for a child's party I have ever attended. There are interesting things for the children to do and explore- ponds, mini- beasts. There is a great playground. The gardens are beautiful....More
