Birmingham Heritage Forum

The Friends of Selly Oak Park have joined the Birmingham Heritage Forum. 


The Forum is a consortium of prestigious heritage sites in and around Birmingham and it has kindly accepted the Park on the grounds of its historical interest - being i) the first park in the area of the former Kings Norton and Northfield Urban District Council opened in 1899, and ii) the last resting place of the stump of the famous Selly Oak oak tree, and having iii) a Nature, Art and Heritage Trail, and iv) a detailed account of its history.

Beside all of that, the park is an attractive place in a busy part of the city to while away an hour in an open, airy green space - a lunch hour or a relaxing hour after work.
