All aboard!!

If you fancy a tour of Cannon Hill Park,  take a ride on the Little Gem Train! It’s around this time of year that the Little Gem fires up it’s engine and chooo-choos it’s way around the highways and byways of Birmingham’s premier park.

With the weather finally picking up a bit, take a day out and spend a few hours relaxing. The park boasts over 60 acres, and includes a conservation area. Why not turn your hand to boating or fishing at one of the large ponds? There is a children’s playground and a lovely tea shop. For the more sporty, there are some tennis courts, and for the musical there is a band stand too! With bowling and putting greens and cycle routes, whatever you are looking for in a park, Cannon Hill will have it.
