Celebrating nature's persistence in the city.
Birmingham has 571 parks totalling over 3,500 hectares (14 sq mi) of public open space, more than any other equivalent sized European city. The centrepieces of Birmingham's park system are the five Premier Parks; Cannon Hill Park, Handsworth Park, Kings Heath Park, Lickey Hills, Sutton Park.
Public parks emerged in the 1830s to improve the health of the working classes living in the over-crowded conditions of the rapidly growing industrial town. It was hoped that parks would reduce disease, crime, and social unrest, as well as providing “green lungs” for the city and areas for recreation.
