Delivering a sense of wilderness within an urban environment, visitors to Sutton Park can enjoy the captivating scenery, using an accessible network of paths.There are opportunities to enjoy walking, jogging, angling, nature watching, orienteering, play areas, restaurants and use bridle paths and cycling routes in the Park. Car parks are located at all the main entrances and the Park is linked to a variety of public transport routes.Sutton Park is an historic landscape that covers an area of over 2,000 acres and attracts over two million visits every year.In 1997, English Nature designated Sutton Park a National Nature Reserve and it is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).Lying six miles to the north of Birmingham City Centre this landscape is a mosaic of open heathland, woodlands, wetlands, marshes and seven lakes each with their own rich variety of plants and wildlife, some rarely seen in the region. It is an important site for wildlife and conservation, containing fine examples of natural countryside that have survived for hundreds of years. These habitats are part of a working grazed landscape where cattle and wild ponies can be seen grazing during the year.This park is a natural area where animals roam freely. Please wash your hands with soap and water before eating or drinking.

Visited with my Beavers Scouts Colony. Had a brilliant time. Nice enclosed play area, stream for paddling in on a hot day (it was the day we went), and plenty of open spaces, woodland, heathland to explore. The chaps at the Ice Cream kiosk were very helpful when it came to getting ice creams for 23 children & 10 adults.... More

A very large area of parkland, with restaurants ,a café, play areas, streams, and lakes. You cannot drive through the park, as you could in the past, but the roads and car parking areas are extensive. Because of its size there are many access "gates" , this is where a toll charge was once made. There is still a herd... More
