This is a former deer park with 2,400 acres of open space - including 7 lakes. The terrain is a mix of heathland, woodlands, wetlands and marshes. Dogs are welcome, but there are a few restrictions in certain areas to protect the wildlife at breeding times.
Most of the park is designated an ancient monument and there are three archaeological walks taking you past a Roman road, and evidence of prehistoric Brummies.
Open 0900 to dusk. Rangers are on duty throughout the park. Pay & Display car parks at all entrances. WC+disabled, visitor centre. Town Gate café for snacks and light meals. Bistro, steakhouse and other restaurants within the park. Free dog poo bags from the visitor centre.
Massive park, and the centre for loads of outdoor activities and organised dog walks. It's a huge local dogwalkers' favourite and a fabulous space.
Walkwise, probably the best thing to do is to start at the Visitor Centre, and choose one of the helpful leaflets with walk routes and at the same time find out where dogs may not be permitted, and get the poo bags too. The park is so vast that there will always be more than enough space for everyone.
