Lickey Hills Country Park

Lickey Hills Country Park, Warren Lane, Rednal, Birmingham. B45 8ER

Lickey Hills Country Park is one of Birmingham’s most varied and treasured parks. It covers 524 acres and is located just 10 miles south west of Birmingham.

The park offers different things to different people – it’s a place for family days out, to spot wildlife, for sport, school trips, or maybe just for the views and a cup of tea.

Lickey Hills has a complex and interesting geology which has created a variety of habitats. These include woodlands, heathland and grassland, which are home to an incredible diversity of wildlife.

Lickey Hills has a Green Flag Award and is designated as a Country Park.

“Lickey Hills has loads going on – it is great for a quick walk and a play or for a longer explore. Whilst the playground is looking a bit tired that does not bother my two and they love the dens and sculptures throughout the park.

Many of the trails are buggy friendly (although somewhat bumpy) and they even have sling walks during the week. Just make sure you leave plenty of time to park as the car park does fill quickly”.
