  • Excellent park and well worth a visit with the family! Just avoid contact with a certain member of staff. I believe she may be the manager-older lady with zero people skills. I visit the farm regularl...  more »
  • Excellent place for a variety of ages. Only when the weather is dry though. We spent time at the playground, farm and a short walk to watch the planes land, while having a picnic. The planes come so l...  more »

  • A really nice park, clean with a nice playground and farm area. Great for watching planes by the airport end. The kids loved it.
  • Large council country park, great place to take kids, walk the dog, play football. Also has decent play area, great views of planes taking off from BHX and small farm next door. Fab free day out.
  • Lots of open space. A council run farm open to the public. A children's play ground and good plane spotting as the airport ajoins the park
  • Awesome view of planes and runaways. Very big park with beautiful scenes. Amazing to see the Emirates Airbus A380 land coming over your head.
  • Many items are in the wrong places and you will be overcharged if you do not throughly check the item against the price, I've been overcharged a few times now and have spoken to the management about it.....but it's still happening to date. There was a fridge advertising ice-cream on offer, when I got to the checkout I was charged full price £4.50, after complaining I was informed that they had sold the ice-cream that was on offer but they couldn't leave the fridge empty so filled it up with ice-cream that wasn't on offer hopping to catch customers out that don't check there till receipt, which I presume are many. Many shelves are empty at opening times too, we recently visited on a Sunday morning but left shortly after due to poor fruit and veg availability. Leaving on a positive note, some of the checkout staff are very chatty and cheerful.
