Highbury Park through the seasons and the years between Kings Heath and Moseley

I first started getting photos of Highbury Park near Kings Heath and Moseley 10 years ago in December 2009. First proper venture into the park when it was all covered in snow to see Highbury Hall. The park was originally the grounds of the home of Joseph Chamberlain. He gave the park to the city before his death in 1914 and the park opened to the public in 1930.

Highbury Park through the seasons and the years between Kings Heath and Moseley





I first started getting photos of Highbury Park near Kings Heath and Moseley 10 years ago in December 2009. First proper venture into the park when it was all covered in snow to see Highbury Hall. The park was originally the grounds of the home of Joseph Chamberlain. He gave the park to the city before his death in 1914 and the park opened to the public in 1930.


Highbury Park on Wikipedia. The park is the estate of Highbury Hall which was the former home of Joseph Chamberlain. Once the Mayor of Birmingham in the late 19th Century. He was later an MP. The hall is near the north east corner of the park on Yew Tree Road in Moseley (in the Moor Green area). Before he died he bequeathed the park to the people of Birmingham. The park finally opened to the public in 1930.

The Camp Hill Line is to the south of the park. Hopefully in a few years, Kings Heath Station will be rebuilt close to where The Gym and Homebase are now at the Findlay Road Retail Park.

The main entrance of the park is on the High Street in Kings Heath, close to Queensbridge Road. If you are coming from Kings Heath Park, you can also enter Highbury Park from Dad's Lane, in an entrance on Shutlock Lane. The other entrances and exits are on Moor Green Lane, and near the gatehouse lodge close to Yew Tree Road.

From here you can then walk towards Cannon Hill Park, either down Russell Road or head down Moor Green Lane and enter on Brockley Grove onto the Holders Lane Woods.

 

OK back to Highbury Park.

 

December 2009

The first time I got photos of Highbury Park was from early December 2009 from the High Street in Kings Heath, but I did not enter the park at this time as I wasn't ready. I probably headed up Queensbridge Road at the time.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (Dec 2009) no snow (1).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

The path down into the park. I would return a few weeks later after it had snowed.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (Dec 2009) no snow (2).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

About 4 days before Xmas Day I headed to the park, this time for an actual walk around. Back to the High Street, Kings Heath entrance (at this point hadn't used the other entrances). A bike near the caution sign.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park snow (December 2009 (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The old brick wall. It would later be fully repaired years later.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park snow (December 2009 (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

One of the ponds in the park. Totally frozen and iced over.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park snow (December 2009 (5).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The paths near Moor Green Lane and Shutlock Lane had a thin layer of snow over them. Evergreen trees behind trees that had shed their leaves.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park snow (December 2009 (7).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

I think the snow was completely frozen over the paths despite all the footprints and tyre marks from bikes. This path leads back to the old wall. The gardens of Highbury Hall are to the left of here.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park snow (December 2009 (10).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Near the entrance / exit to Moor Green Lane, close to Yew Tree Road is this gatehouse / lodge. Now a private residence. Built around 1880 as part of the original approach to Highbury Hall. Part of the drive is still present. But most of the route is now covered by trees. Now the only main entrance to Highbury Hall is on Yew Tree Road.

dndimg alt="Highbury Hall" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park lodge snow (Dec 2009).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

January 2015

The next major time I visited Highbury Park with my camera was when there was these outdoor musical instruments that people could play with (especially young kids). This one looked like a harp.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park outdoor instruments (Jan 2015) (1).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

A carved wooden bench.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park outdoor instruments (Jan 2015) (2).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

Another wooden bench. Notice that they both have flowers carved into them.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park outdoor instruments (Jan 2015) (3).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

Can you play? Can you play loud or quiet? - Dynamics. Can you play long or short notes? Duration. This is what it says on each one of these musical instruments.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park outdoor instruments (Jan 2015) (4).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

A bit closer up. Not really sure how they work.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park outdoor instruments (Jan 2015) (5).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

A wooden circle. Birmingham's very on "Stone Henge" or more like "Wood Henge" in Highbury Park.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park outdoor instruments (Jan 2015) (6).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

Stone hall in a triangular piece of stone. Again not fully sure what you are supposed to do with this, maybe say something through the hole and another person may hear you?

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park outdoor instruments (Jan 2015) (7).JPG" style="width: 100%;" />

August 2018

Heading down Dad's Lane towards the Shutlock Lane entrane of the park. Saw this National Express West Midlands single decker bus on the 27 bus route. It would also pass Kings Heath Park.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Saw a Land Rover Series II in the car park.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Mocha Moo Cafe was at The Great Big Pet Picnic. Here people could get food and drink while with their pets in this field.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The leaves were lush and green in the middle of August 2018. And the ponds made some nice reflections and ripples.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (4) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The pond is also known as the Fish Pond. Many birds are to be seen around here.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (5) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Saw this heron pirched on a branches of a tree that was over the pond.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (6) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Trees in a wood and early signs of the autumn to come.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (8) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Almost the middle of August, and leaves were already falling off trees, and it wasn't yet September!

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (9) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Yet the leaves on the trees were still green. Apart from the leaves that had already fallen.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2018) (10).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

August 2019

Heading round the back of the old brick wall. Now fully restored, after part of it was damaged. Signs of graffiti, but faint.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2019) (2) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Getting closer to the wall. Trees all full of green leaves at this point. This was near the end of August 2019.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2019) (3) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Here you can see evidence of the brick wall repairs. Looking as good as new.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2019) (4) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A grass path amongst the trees. I didn't head up this one.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2019) (5).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Reflections in the pond. Leaves still lush and green before autumn came.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2019) (6) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A Common moorhen seen in the Fish Pond. The odd leaf had fallen into the pond. And the fishes are just about visible close to the surface. At least I think they are fishes!

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2019) (7) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Several flower beds with roses. Close to the Shutlock Lane and Moor Green Lane exit.

dndimg alt="Highbury Park" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Highbury Park (August 2019) (9) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

After this I headed down Moor Green Lane and went into Cannon Hill Park via the Holders Lane Woods. In late summer, there is usually a fun fair on the fairground in Cannon Hill Park, which I saw on my walk towards Edgbaston Road. You can even start your three parks walk in Kings Heath Park and walk through Highbury Park and then into Cannon Hill Park. Ending up near the Cricket Ground.

Magical Lantern Festival 2017 at Kings Heath Park

The Magical Lantern Festival returned to Birmingham for the Christmas 2017 season, but this time at Kings Heath Park, having been at the Botanical Gardens the year before. I only really saw it in the daylight hours. Looked "magical" with the snow of December 2017. Did return once more at Christmas Eve, but didn't book a ticket to see after dark.

Magical Lantern Festival 2017 at Kings Heath Park





The Magical Lantern Festival returned to Birmingham for the Christmas 2017 season, but this time at Kings Heath Park, having been at the Botanical Gardens the year before. I only really saw it in the daylight hours. Looked "magical" with the snow of December 2017. Did return once more at Christmas Eve, but didn't book a ticket to see after dark.


See also my Magical Lantern Festival post on the 2016 event at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

After getting some initial daylight photos from the 11A or 11C buses on the Vicarage Road in November 2017, I went to Kings Heath Park on the 8th December 2017 after it had snowed. Tickets to go after 5pm would have been anywhere between £15 to £17. But Kings Heath Park was open as normal before then for free.

A pink canopy of roses surrounded by snow.

Santa with his reindeer near the entrance.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) snow (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Would assume that at nightfall you would walk under this archway.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) snow (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Snow covered presents, Christmas trees and a house with a boy.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) snow (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Snow covered elf.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) snow (5).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

I wan't sure if this was Angry Birds or Rio?

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) snow (6).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Santa clock lamppost.

Reindeer covered in snow looking sky blue in colour.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) snow (9).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

2017 "Merry Christmas" and Santa on a relaxing armchair reading a list of kids present wishes. Why fly to Lapland when you could go to Kings Heath Park (2 years ago that is).

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) snow (10).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

I last came back on Christmas Eve 2017, by then the snow had melted, so looked a lot less Christmasy.

Fun fair rides under wraps. They probably open them up just before it gets dark. In the day they were covered over.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (1) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Polar bears. Now if only I got them with the snow.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (2) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Some kind of flowers I would guess.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (3) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Polar bears again from another angle.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (4) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Oh look it's the red boot with presents again, but no snow this time.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (5) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Giant butterfly on a tree.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (6) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

More flowers along side a path, on the leaf covered soil area.

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (7) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

In the pond was a frog (I think). Or some kind of pond monster?

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (8) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

These swans look real, but they are jusr Magical Lanterns!

dndimg alt="Magical Lantern Kings Heath" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Magical Lantern Festival 2017 Kings Heath Park (Dec 2017) Xmas Eve (9) .jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

The Birmingham skyline. I would guess this would look nice lit up after dark.

April in Kings Heath Park.





Fresh spring leaves, spring blossom, and Easter Egg hunting in the park.


April brought new colours to Kings Heath Park as the buds opened to reveal fresh green leaves and spring blossom. The spring weather brought more people to the park, and the Friends of Kings Heath Park Litter Pickers were out, making sure that the park was tidy for all to enjoy.

The highlight of the month was the Easter weekend, with sunshine and warm temperatures making the park the perfect place to go. The Friends of Kings Heath Park put on a children's Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Saturday. Each child had to find one of the many wooden discs that had been hidden in the area of the park around the big horse chestnut tree, then exchange it for two eggs - a wooden one to paint, and a chocolate one to eat. The keen painters could also decorate rocks to hide in the park, continuing the 'Kings Heath Rocks' craze that has been keeping children and families entertained for well over a year now. 

The evenings are getting longer still, and the park is enjoyed by walkers of all ages, nature lovers, runners and sports groups, dog walkers, and families and children. A wonderful open space in our community of Kings Heath!

Kings Heath Park over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend 2019

It's been a hot four days over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend in late April 2019. I popped along to Kings Heath Park on Easter Monday, the 22nd April 2019 to check out the bluebells, the pond and flowers around the park! A walk down Vicarage Road into the park, then when I left, headed up Cartland Road towards Pershore Road, Stirchley (instead of Avenue Road).

Kings Heath Park over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend 2019





It's been a hot four days over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend in late April 2019. I popped along to Kings Heath Park on Easter Monday, the 22nd April 2019 to check out the bluebells, the pond and flowers around the park! A walk down Vicarage Road into the park, then when I left, headed up Cartland Road towards Pershore Road, Stirchley (instead of Avenue Road).


Entering from the Vicrage Road entrance near the corner of Avenue Road, saw this yellow flower near the gatehouse.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (1).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Heading up the path parallel to Avenue Road, having a look at the bluebells growing in the grass, with a few zoom ins.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (2).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

You don't have to go far to see bluebells it seems! Just catch the 11A or 11C to Kings Heath (or the 35 or 50). The High Street is in walking distance of the park.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (3).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Not as far zoomed in with this group of bluebells. Was also buttercups growing in the grass near the Avenue Road side.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (4).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Thought about leaving at Avenue Road, near one of the car park exits, but decided to check out the ponds instead! The trees around the pond was looking lush and green.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (5).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Even more lush and green around the pond here. Noticed some barriers to the left of here (not in the photo). The water jets were not turned on.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (6).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

Lots of colour with the yellow and red flowers around the four pots and the flagpole.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (7).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

A zoom into the four pots in the middle.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (8).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

On the other side of the path heading back to the other Vicrage Road entrance / exit, saw these flowers planted on the left.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (9).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

More yellow and red flowers around this small tree on the right.

dndimg alt="Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019" dndsrc="../uploadedfiles/Kings Heath Park Easter Monday 2019 (10).jpg" style="width: 100%;" />

My usual 10 minute walk in and out of the park. Headed past King Edward VI Camp Hill Schools (closed for the Easter holidays). Wasn't going to wait 20 minutes for another 11C, so walked up Cartland Road towards the Pershore Road in Stirchley. And the wait for the no 45 bus was 10 minutes.

Spring has clearly arrived at Kings Heath Park!





With lighter evenings, spring flowers, and many more people using our lovely park, Spring has most certainly arrived at Kings Heath Park.


March heralds the beginning of spring, and early spring flowers have started to blossom in Kings Heath Park. Daffodils and forsythia have brought bright splashes of yellow, and the huge magnolia near the Park House has been magnificent this year. The sunny days have brought more people to the park, and the lighter evenings have meant that more people can fit in a run or a walk with the dog after work. It is still cold though, so the children in the playground and the dog walkers are still wearing warm jackets! The pool, which had almost dried up during last year's hot summer, is filling up from the rain, and the heron has started visiting again.

The park staff have been busy maintaining the park throughout the winter, and March saw the second volunteer wood clearing event of the year, led by Dean the Ranger.
