Kings Heath Park is centered on the Park House which was built in 1832 for the MP, William Congreve Russell. In 1880, it was bought by John Cartland (ancestor of the author Barbara Cartland, lover of pinkness and author of  romantic novels!).

The land was sold to the council and opened as a public park in 1908. The building houses council offices and the Cartland Tea Rooms.

Plants are available for sale in the nursery at Kings Heath Park.

Let's take a look at the Park though the seasons :

The shed in Kings Heath Park is a warm and welcoming environment where people can learn new skills, work on their own or chat over a cup of tea. 

 

The workers in the shed produce beautiful items in wood, metal and glass, some of which is sold at local craft fairs and markets to raise funds for the project.
