  • Beautiful and well maintained park. A lot lovely spot for a morning walk. There's pleasant views and liveliness. I definitely suggest at least going in autumn as all leaves turn yellow. I went in the spring and blossom trees added colour. It's not free parking. There is Mac if you want to stop by for a coffee and bread. There are fairs and mini golf as well. There are facilities to ride on train and boating.
  • I have loved and used Cannon Hill Park for large parts of my short life. I saw The Highland Games there in 1978. I saw a bee there in 2014. I sang a song there. Learned how to run there I'm sure those of you who live in Birmingham know it is a part of your life. Please treat is as such. We should be ashamed of ourselves. At these extraordinary times out public spaces are all we have. There would be outrage at if it had to be closed. However we are in danger of losing the park for the privilege it is. Yes, it is a privilege. Why? The costs to clean it and police it and secure it and maintain it and keep it up to code are growing. The amount of rubbish we are leaving in our precious park is up 400 percent. I'm asking everyone to please remind 1 another of our responsibility to ourselves to keep the park clean by taking responsibility for our own rubbish. The bins only overflow because they can't be emptied fast enough and we don't bring our own rubbish bags from home. Please help. Summer is coming. We have bank holidays galore. We only have 1 park. Please keep it clean . Bring something to take your rubbish home in. Thank you.
