Wildlife Area
Sutton Park is a large urban park located in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, West Midlands, England. Most of the park is a National Nature Reserve; large parts are also a Scheduled Ancient Monument. It is the seventh largest urban park in Europe and the second largest outside a capital city. The park covers more than 2400acre, with a mix of heathland, wetlands and marshes, seven lakes, extensive ancient woodlands (covering approximately a quarter of the park), several restaurants, a private 18-hole golf course on its western edge and a municipal golf course to the south, a donkey sanctuary, children's playgrounds and a visitors' centre. There is no entrance charge, although on summer Sundays a parking charge for cars applies. A wide range of leisure activities are undertaken in the park including dog walking, pony treking, bike riding and kite flying. There are areas to fly model aeroplanes and helicopters. A railway line runs through the park.

  • Love the park. I love to walk around and take my camera and take lots of cool pictures. Fun place for kids to run around and places to eat. Adults can rest ot take a nice relaxing walk. People can drive there. Different entrances to choose to start your journey. Overall it's a lovely place to enjoy that has been around for generation's
  • Fantastic park in the city. Great for walks where you can get sufficiently away from the city without getting lost. Great moorlands and woodlands to explore on foot or bike; alone, with your partner, friends or dog.
  • If you like dog excrement then this is the place for you, it's everywhere. It's good to see that the dog owners are not content with leaving it on the ground, they put it into little bags and hang it from the branches of trees and they also adorn the hedgerows and bushes with them. It's great to see so many ignorant, selfish, thoughtless dog owners all in one place.
  • Beautiful local green space, with wild ponies if you're lucky enough to see them... It's large enough (8 square miles, I think) for a long walk, with beautiful little lakes along the way.
  • Beautiful park. Lots of space for the kids and dogs to run around. Lacks facilities for refreshment and toilets.
