Friends of Walkers Heath Park
Walkers Heath Park situated in South Birmingham is 51 acres bordering Druids Heath, Kings Norton and Wythall. It is vast and green and you may forget you are in an urban park when you are there! The Chinn Brook runs alongside the park and there is a medium-sized wetland area - yet to be brought back to its former glory! Yet to be fully explored, the wildlife constitutes foxes, bats, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, swallow hawks and ... lots of dogs! The park has a basketball court, netball court and a tennis court with permanent tennis net as well as two sets of football goals. There's also a concrete table-tennis table. The park has a wooden throne, an imagination wood, an area being cultivated as a woodland (a former miniature golf course) and a community orchard. There are also a trail of wooden birds/animals living in trees - there's an owl, a woodpecker, a sloth and a snake. See if you can find them all!
