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.

Nice to know that we have this big, lovely expanse of green on our doorstep. On a sunny day you could be in Devon or Cornwall. Marvellous.

I believe this is one of the biggest urban parks in Europe. There are many walking trails, places for families to have picnics a pool with swans and ducks, a great place to just chill out!

This place is wonderful, literally miles of unspoiled heathland, woodland and lake-side walks with little or no restrictions. A dog walkers paradise, with few if any restrictions, no "jobsworth" rangers to apply petty rules. A wonderful, wonderful location.
