“A hidden gem”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Elmdon park in Solihull is hidden treasure. Situated behind a residential estate and along side the
world famous Land Rover plant it expands into a glorious setting for picnics and walks. The main feature is a lake filled with swans, ducks, migrating birds, and fish. On one side of the lake is a dense wood that comes to life with bluebells and wild life in the spring, on the other side are rolling hills with expanses of open grass land kept well manicured. At the top of the hills you will find a very old church, walk past onto the narrow lane, turn right and on the left you will find a hidden gem an old walled garden that is currently being restored. surprise after surprise in such a residential area.

“Peaceful wide open spaces”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

A lovely place to escape the rat-race for a Sunday afternoon stroll. Dogs barking, children playing and families spending some quality time away from a screen. Love it!

We loved the park so much we moved house to be near it and now its only a 5 minute walk.
Great walks, great cycling, great picnics and great duck feeding. Happy times :-)
