Sheldon Country ParkBirmingham, West Midlands
Sheldon Country Park covers an area of just over 300 acres, comprising open grassland, wetlands, old hedgerows and some mature woodland. Situated on the very edge of the city, the land has escaped development and has become a haven for wildlife.
The Parks Ranger Service is based at Old Rectory Farm, a 17th Century dairy farm, which is situated on the main entrance to the park.
Things to do
Old Rectory Farm has been fully restored and operates as a demonstration farm, showing city dwellers traditional methods of farming. Animals kept at the farm include Jersey cattle, pigs, goats, ponies, ducks, chickens and geese. It's like 'countryside in the city'.
The farm is open to visitors every day throughout the year and admission is free.
There is also a children's playground, picnic areas and a cafe. Plus three marked football pitches.
Airplane enthusiasts will love that Sheldon Country Park is located alongside Birmingham International Airport. So, there are great views of the runway in certain areas of the park.
