This park is amazing for everyone, dog walkers, runners, hiking and partially disabled.
However for us the star of the show was the cafe.
Ordered toasted sandwiches, which at £5.90 we thought a bit over priced but ended up being well worth it. Bacon, brie and cranberry, tortillas, homemade coleslaw and a generous side salad with an excellent sweet balsamic dressing and spiralled veg.
Only down side was they only take cash due to poor WiFi, but if you know in advance, as we did then you can come prepared. Well done.

Spent about 5 hours here just wandering. Not many actual pathways in places so difficult if you are not quite fit as it’s easy to mis your footing and slip. Worse obviously after heavy rain. But if you make it to the high points the views are amazing thinking how close it is to a major city. The area is well looked after.
You need to cross the road to visit all of the park, again varying routes depending on how able you are.
We were lucky to find two cafes serving takeaway drinks and light snacks, one on either side. Run by young very pleasant staff.
Can’t wait to go back soon.

Very good place, been going since I was a Kid.
Bit disappointed with the mass chop down of the trees on the top of the hill.
And the café could be up dated, prices are quite high for how dated and low service pervaded.

We visited today 23/08/21 with our 5 year old son we had a nice walk in the woods with our dog who he we enjoyed although no bins anywhere for dog poo so carrying a smelly bag all the way round with us.

The visitor centre is so dated and not fit for purpose it’s exactly the same as when I was a child many years ago poor toilet facilities and cafe not great horrible tea and coffee.

The play area has no seating for anyone with a dog with a view of the play so we could keep and eye on our child whilst having a seat needs picnic benches etc.

The play area could use a revamp and extend it.

It’s time for Birmingham city council to spend some money on a huge revamp of the visitor centre with proper cafe for the amount of visitors it gets

A trip to the "Lickeys" is a traditional Brummy favourite that we haven't done for many years. The day we visited there was lots of space to park. It is a very enjoyable place with lots of wide paths to walk on, great distant views towards Birmingham city centre and good descriptions of the wildlife and flora of the area.

We used to go here when the kids were younger as it is an exciting place for them to have an adventure, with loads of trees and hills and lots of sticks to pick up and play with. It is a good place to take the dog for a walk or get your mountain bike out. Nice place to take a picnic especially in the summer. There is a play area for the kids and a cafe and gift shop if you want a drink or an ice cream. I highly recommend it

We've visited once before and had a super time, so much so that we brought a large group of friends and dogs on our second visit. We all know that it's been wet of late, so wore appropriate footwear, but oh dear. Turns out logging has been untaken despite the weather and, to put it bluntly, ruined this public amenity for everyone for next few months. The tracks are impassable in places and the volume of mud and deep ruts made it dangerous at times. Some access management would be wise until the moisture evaporates and the deeply rutted tracks are repaired.

We traveled from Derbyshire to visit friends from Hereford (under covid rules), our first meet up in months since lockdown. We checked the website before going and it listed all facilities including visitor centre and advise about dogs and plants .
How frustrated and upset when we arrived to find that there were no toilet facilities. I can understand that the visitor centre was closed, but to have no toilets is shameful, not even a portacabin.
The park itself was lovely, but trying to find a suitable place to have a pee, along with other visitors and dogs is just not on. Had the website indicated no toilet facilities I probably would have chosen somewhere else to visit.

Great place to take the dog for a walk and the kids to run around. Well laid out paths and marked walking routes. Gets really muddy after wet weather so good boots or wellies are best after rain. Good playground and visitor centre. There is also a fantastic 18 hole pay and play golf course.

Visited today. Haven’t been for years and now I have a dog I thought it’d be lovely. It’s a gorgeous place, many different routes you can walk. Well kept, clean, no litter around.
One point is the cafe, the reason I put 4 stars and not 5. Looked forward to a well deserved coffee and cake after our walk, sadly it wasn’t to be as cafe is cash only. I’m sorry but what? The lady said it’s because they can’t get signal there, that’s really not good enough. I’m sure there’s a way to sort that out. Cakes were pre bought, not freshly made. This cafe could be an absolute goldmine, like the NT one at Nimmings, Clent.
But the Lickeys themselves, wonderful and well worth a visit.
