Highbury Park Friends is a voluntary group dedicated to the preservation, improvement and enjoyment of Highbury Park in the Birmingham ward of Kings Heath.
Highbury Park is a precious resource, as all open spaces are: it is a haven of tranquility, fresh air and green space for all who live around and visit it. The park is home to abundant wildlife and plant species – woodland, aquatic and other birds, pond animals, and the largest variety of trees of any park in Birmingham. Highbury Park has a rich history, containing evidence from the bronze age to the present day.
Each of these is worth preserving and in some instances enhancing. The Friends actively seek input about the park from all local people and visitors, and liaise with the city council over maintenance, security and events programmes.
Highbury Park Friends try to support the paid park workers in their efforts. We also try to gain funding for preservation, restoration and regeneration of Highbury’s historical and natural resources, so that all may enjoy its beauty. Details about some of these efforts can be found on this website, as can information about joining the group.
