Fantastic little place

I took my 18 month old little boy there and he absolutely loved it. I recommend anyone with small children to go there. Easy to get to and a little gem of Sheldon

A lovely green space visiting after leaving marston green station. If you love watching plane you have picnic benches to watch them. With my six year old we have not made the farm yet! We also found a lovely all days shop by the station to buy sandwiches to enjoy while watching a free air show. Not sure what day... More

This is a very large park which allows you to walk for along way in open park land within the busy city. There is a small farm with real animals in the middle bit with a small café/shop. The park runs from the Coventry Rd to the end of Birmingham Airport runway. So a great place for plane spotters.

Excellent day out with plenty to do. There is a farm to visit which is free and has your normal farm animals such as cows, pigs, sheet etc. Just outside of the farm is big park for all ages with swings, slides and climbing frames. There is a path that goes all around the park which is a lovely walk... More

We live just round the corner so visit often. There's a good variety of animals, a park for children, a bouncy castle in the summer. The small cafe serves good food at a decent price. Walk round the park to end of the Birmingham airport run way to watch the planes taking off and landing. What else can you ask... More

Went on a mid-week sunny day for a walk and to sit watching the planes at the end of the runway. Yes you do get a decent view, but you'll get a far better view if you go to Car Park 5 at the airport itself - you can drive right up to the fence and watch the planes taxiing... More

This farm has been going for years and years, I used to come here with my own parents. I now occasionally take my own children. It isn't an all singing all dancing farm, but it's free and there is a play area and small cafe too. Nice if you have a few hours to pass.

This little gem of BIrmingham not only has a working farm, but if you follow the path round you can view the aeroplanes taking off and landing. Spectaluar sight.. Lovely place to have a walk. Also once a year the sheldon country park fair is on. Look out for signs in and around the area.

I visit Sheldon Country Park on a regular basis with my three children. We really enjoy the visit every time. The farm is owned by Birmingham City Council and is run by the Park Ranger Service who have a massive work load looking after two Country Parks, as they also run Kingfisher Country Park (which is also a great place...
