Overview

Delivering a sense of wilderness within an urban environment, visitors to Sutton Park can enjoy the captivating scenery, using an accessible network of paths.There are opportunities to enjoy walking, jogging, angling, nature watching, orienteering, play areas, restaurants and use bridle paths and cycling routes in the Park. Car parks are located at all the main entrances and the Park is linked to a variety of public transport routes.Sutton Park is an historic landscape that covers an area of over 2,000 acres and attracts over two million visits every year.In 1997, English Nature designated Sutton Park a National Nature Reserve and it is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).Lying six miles to the north of Birmingham City Centre this landscape is a mosaic of open heathland, woodlands, wetlands, marshes and seven lakes each with their own rich variety of plants and wildlife, some rarely seen in the region. It is an important site for wildlife and conservation, containing fine examples of natural countryside that have survived for hundreds of years. These habitats are part of a working grazed landscape where cattle and wild ponies can be seen grazing during the year.This park is a natural area where animals roam freely. Please wash your hands with soap and water before eating or drinking.

It’s about 3 miles across and 9 around. With 7 entrances make sure you know which one you’re after if meeting friends. Great to walk in cycle in mountain bike in ample parking, with an entrance charge on Sundays.

Largest man made park in Britain. Originally designed by Henry VIII for hunting and fishing. An oasis of calm and tranquility.

Lovely park, if you know where you’re going! We visited the first time and went to the wrong entrance- there’s 7 of them apparently! We saw the cows and the donkeys. Great place to have a picnic. The kids also enjoyed the park :)

In practice we will use our discretion with regard to stoves on hard standing but it is against the bye laws of the site.
