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.

Wonderful walks and if you are lucky you can glimpse the ponies living wild on the reserve. Nice open areas for kite flying interspersed with woodland, and some marshy areas so beware! There is a great little pit stop for meals and snacks by the lakes, and after that you can watch some dad's fishing and see what they caught... More

Varied types of areas within the park, heathland, woodland, pathways, streams and lakes. Various wildlife to be spotted. Beautiful for walking in. Also several eating places in the park. There is a visitor centre and play areas for children. The park is suitable for everyone.

Despite paying to get in our local park which I'm already paying for out of my council tax, we had an enjoyable day. Saw come cows, went to the bistro and had a fun day cycling.

Fields, trees, lakes, wildlife and birds dominate this wonderful park. You could walk for hours and hours and still not discover most of it on your first visit. Generally well looked after. Gorgeous place for photography if that's your thing. Surrounded by different types of trees. Good way to take a bit of time out and enjoy nature as intended.... More

One of the little havens around Birmingham that you can escape to and feel 100 miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city! My partner and I took our dog there, and she thoroughly enjoyed her walk here, and so did we! Definitely will return soon.
