Cannon Hill Park

Location: Russell Road, Birmingham



If you visit Cannon Hill Park you'll discover why this 250-acre green space is the city's most popular park. Cannon Hill has such a wide range of things to do: you can go boating or fishing, play tennis or bowls, and there's even a 36-hole mini-golf course. Look out for two children's playgrounds, walking and jogging trails, and the garden tea rooms. Many simply sit among the greenery or next to the lake and enjoy a picnic. At weekends you can often find a mini-funfair in the park too. The park dates back to 1873 and includes a wonderful old historic bandstand among the trees.
