Green & Open Spaces (city by city roll-out)

Together with Community we are mapping and tracking all the wonderful green and open spaces across the UK starting with the city of Birmingham.


Parks and Green Open Spaces in Birmingham

Birmingham is extremely proud of its parks and green open spaces.

With 571 parks covering a combined area of 14 square miles, this is more green open space than any other equivalent sized european city including Paris. 15 of Birmingham’s parks have received the prestigious Green Flag Awards.

The city’s parks play a major role in bringing people and community together and providing safe and family friendly environments where people can relax and enjoy nature on a walk, run or cycle ride in wonderful green and open spaces.

For these reasons, Birmingham's Parks and Open Spaces are treasured Gems.
