Westley Vale Millennium Green, Acocks Green - A Wonderful open space!

The Westley Vale Millennium Green is located in Acocks Green, Birmingham, not far from Acocks Green Station and the Grand Union Canal. A green space for the local community.


In Acocks Green is a hidden green space called the Westley Vale Millennium Green. Main entrance is on The Avenue. As you walk beyond the gate, there is street art (still there) by street artist Hoakser, that was painted in early 2015. There is also an entrance from Malvern Road. One path leads to a footbridge over the Grand Union Canal from Woodcock Lane. People are expected to take the rubbish home with them. Sometimes there is weird people hanging about, so best not to stick around for too long. The Westley Brook flows through here.

Millennium Greens were formed following Government support at the beginning of the 21st Century. It was 5.5 acres of disused allotment land that was transformed. It was opened in 2000 by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham. Improvements were made in 2015-16.
