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...

Recently went to Sheldon Country park with our 2 year old. It's just off the beaten track of Sheldon, with plentiful parking, which is free. Essentially, Sheldon Park is a massive area of grass, so if you wanted to take a picnic you will easily find somewhere to sit down and enjoy. A word of warning however; as with most... More

Farm, tea room and plane spotting - the kids loved the planes but the highlight for me was the toasted egg sandwich at the cafe - perfectly fried and served between two slices of white toast with butter. And a side serving of chips. Delicious!!!

Wish ppl would do their homework before knocking Sheldon Country Park. Yes the farm is small but it is child friendly. I took my son there many times and in summer they will sometimes have a bouncy castle. Also, there is a lovely playground outside which children love. Now for the airport, ppl are right the viewing point is a... More

I think the complainants of this country park and farm, may have visited the wrong place......it is a country park ie a large open grassed space, not a traditional park with flower gardens etc. The farm is old, working, and original, with a small selection of animals. It is very child friendly, and the café is a real gem, with... More

Fantastic small farm run by volunteers, farm animals, playground and cafe with free parking, or on a bus route. Cafe is a great place to grab a drink and a sandwich, if you are passing or looking for somewhere to escape from the office; good value and quality.

I regularly use Sheldon country park as it's just down the road from me. The farm itself is great for the kids. They have some lovely Jersey cows, pigs (a bit smelly), goats, ducks, chickens and sheep. The kids can get up quite close to the animals which they really love. The playground isn't huge but has a great range... More

Visited park with 5 year grandson and was shocked at the disgrace of this park... every bin was overflowing and on the floor rubbish (no idea when last emptied) as for the observation point to look at planes its a couple of nasty benches at the end of slip where only small planes take off. There is no signage in... More

The park and farm is FREE, because of this you can't knock it. Yes the farm is very small, but big enough for the kids to have a talk round. The tea room is very small, I've been in bigger lifts. As for the dog walkers and their poop, that's disgusting! If you dog dumps, have the courtesy to clean... More
