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.

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 railway line runs through the park.

  • We loved Sutton Park, one of the biggest in Europe. We've seen wild ponies and cattle and we walked a few kilometers admiring woodlands and lanes. There are car parks and facilities around the park, marked on google maps. I would also suggest you bring your bike, the park is huge!
  • Excellent place for a day out. Big park. Nice paths to ride a bike🚲. A couple of restaurants with beautiful lakes view.
  • Fantastic open area great for relaxing, cycling, running, walking, chilling out. Has places to sit down to eat meals and drink. As well swimming, boating or just getting away from everyone.
  • 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
  • For family relaxation I will definitely recommend this place. Place before went there remember about the weather and don't forget to bring some polyester clothing and food and last look after the nature.
