Excellent Place for a Walk
Apr 2021 • Couples
There are two free carparks one at the top of the hill by Elmdon church and the other is accessed from Tanhouse Farm Lane and is close to the lake.
It has been expanded in recent years to include a nature reserve which is a large area that was previously farmers fields. The expansion has also taken in an area that was previously an old walled garden. Wellies are often needed in this area.
On our last visit we noticed there had been substantial improvements to the walkways in the woodland area next to the lake.
It is a very attractive park and very popular with dog walkers. We visit during the week as it gets very busy at weekends.

Lovely park
Mar 2020
We are so lucky to have parks. Elmdon has a play area for children, a stream, a lake, an old parish church and great slopes for sledging on if we get snow. A nature reserve is on the doorstep too. Obviously spoilt at times by a very small number of dog owners who don’t clear up dog mess and also litter left by the selfish. But a tremendous facility that we should cherish.

Gorgeous scenic park with large lake
Feb 2020 • Couples
Gorgeous walks around a huge park with lake. There are swans, ducks and geese.There is a small pier where children and people feed the ducks. It's got a hill which is a climb up to a church. There is a walled garden at the top of the hill.( Difficult to find )
Sledging in this park when it snows is a delight. There is a small Brook that goes through the park with three little bridges going over.
The park has a play area and tennis court. Although nets are often broken.

A wide open space for a "good blow walk"
Mar 2019
Just the place to go if you want to "blow the cobwebs away" & have an invigorating walk.
Also in the Spring there is a spectacular display of snowdrops in the Park & in the adjoining church-yard

Swans haven
Jul 2019 • Friends
This is a large green park, it enjoys a couple of lakes with geese and a pair of swans who share their new cygnets annually, such a pleasure to watch. There is a well maintained children’s playground where digs are not encouraged to ensure children are safe and not frightened. The park has well maintained walkways but possibly needs more parking availability especially when football teams play and events take place. My only criticism is that the lake and stream could do with more tic, often lots of debris causing blockages etc.

I have been going to this park when I was a child. I am now 56 and, although don't go, drive past it every Sunday. Always children playing in the Summer and Sledging in the Winter. Lots for everyone

Fabulous park. Wide open spaces with a lovely lake and ducks. Church is amazing and you can walk on footpaths or in the woods. My 4 year old grandson loves it.

A good Afternoon
Jun 2019
Free parking, plenty of open space to walk and let a dog run free, areas left to grow naturally to encourage wild life, if grass is a little wet a path can be taken around the park leading to the end of the runway at Birmingham airport with plenty of seating to sit and watch the planes land and take off, a good afternoon and not a penny spent.

A great place for a walk/picnic/kickabout.
May 2019 • Family
This was our first visit and we approached the park from the Damson Parkway down a little country lane, wondering where on earth we where going!
What a delight when we discovered the expanse of greenery at the end - trees, semiwilderness, bodies of water, sports field; it's obviously very popular from the numbers of people walking along it's criss-crossed pathways. A lovely, quite large, oasis of green in amongst the JLR factories!
Only one complaint though.......why aren't there any public toilets??

Discovery of a hidden gem
Apr 2019 • Friends
Went on a conducted history tour of Elmdon Park by Stephen Carr of Elmdon Park Heritage Trust also of Elmdon Church by Toby Young, vicar of the church.
The tour is fascinating covering ‘iron age’ to 1700s and up to Georgian times to the Manor demolition in the 1950s
The walled garden is particularly of interest and is the subject of a worthy project of restoration.
Equally friendly, welcoming is Elmdon Church with its lovely stained glass windows with one having small stained plaques from the 1700-1800’church
Well worth a visit, my sister was allowed to ring the bells 🔔 (she is a bell ringer!)
