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.

We've spent over 6hrs at the park today, as a group we consisted of adults, teenagers & young children. All of us were engaged and enjoyed the park, whether it was paddling in the brooks, watching the cows, walking through the countryside or having lunch at the Blackfoot bistro. Simply a wonderful space in a busy world, just lovely.

As I live in Sutton Coldfield I have been to the park many times and know it well. It extends over 2,400 acres and is remarkably unspoilt. It's great for walking your dog as well as taking friends or family for some fresh air. I've never known it crowded. There are play areas, a golf course, sailing on one of... More

We are so very lucky to have a place like Sutton Park. Having lived in Streetly for many years, I know the place extremely well yet still enjoy any opportunity to be there. Wonderful walks, be it on the flat paths or in the woodland and so easy to lose the crowds. If you don't want to walk, then there... More
