I live just 10 miles away from this lovely place yet it has only been in the last 3 years that I have been utilising its amazing space.
Sutton Coldfield Park covers an area of over 2000 acres and is a landscape full of woodlands, wetlands, marshes and seven lakes. The park is also a natural area where animals roam freely, you will see wild cows and wild ponies quite often throughout the park and there is also a donkey sanctuary.
I run here regularly around one of it’s lakes and come here for multiple walks at the weekend or on a sunny evening. It is a great escape for a few hours and you feel like your no where near the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Saturday morning was beautiful and with nothing else to do with my morning I headed out for a long walk through the park.
