Help us record the trees in Kings Heath Park.

Announcing our new project and website!

The new website at is a project of the Friends of Kings Heath Park aimed at cataloguing the trees in the park. Photographs are being published along with a location and identification of a tree and it is hoped to cover as many trees as possible. Information about the trees is included and a blog records changing information such as when particular trees are in bloom.

The site has links to maps showing where trees are located so that trees of particular interest can easily be found.

There is an opportunity, via the blog, to leave comments on articles and should people wish to contribute articles or photographs an email is included;

The Park is still Open!

Why not get out of the house and have a walk in the park?

We are so lucky to have our park, a beautiful open space in the middle of the big city. It is an ideal place for exercise walks and runs during the Coronavirus crisis. Try and avoid busy times, though, and don’t forget to keep your distance from other people.

Unfortunately, the Tea Rooms, the toilets and the playground are all closed at the moment to help prevent the spread of Covid 19.

Enjoy seeing spring arrive in Kings Heath Park.

New Playground equipment

August 2019

Great news! A very generous individual donated a large amount of money to us which has enabled us to purchase some new equipment for the playground at Kings Heath Park. The purchase and installation of the equipment was arranged through Birmingham City Council.

It has been lovely seeing the children climbing up , sliding down and playing imaginative games on the two new pieces of equipment!

A message to the generous donor on behalf of all the users of the playground – THANK YOU!

Santa visits the park

We were very excited to welcome Santa and Mrs Claus to Kings Heath Park on 14th December!

They received young visitors in the garden house of the TV Garden, thanks to the generosity of the charity ‘Thrive’ .

The whole event was organised by the Cartlands Tea Rooms, and the tickets started with a festive tea in the tea rooms. The Friends of King Heath Park and Ranger Dean helped to host the visits to Santa after tea.

A good example of co-operation between four groups in the park.
