Sheldon Country Park

by BecSorby (follow)
A lovely country park located close to the heart of the city.

Located just seven miles outside of the Birmingham City Centre, Sheldon Country Park is over 300 acres of public space, grassland, wetlands and woodland. With a children’s play area, farm and even a viewing area for Birmingham Airport, it is a lovely day out without having to go too far out of the city. Here’s what’s on for families at Sheldon Country Park.

Airport Viewing Area

Fancy doing something a bit different with the kids? Birmingham International Airport sits on the fringe of Sheldon Country Park and has a designated viewing area. Find a spot and watch the planes taking off and landing up close!
