Victoria Common

Victoria Common, Northfield was opened to the public in 1897. Formerly known as Bradley Field, it was once one of the village's open fields where, in the middle ages, individual villagers held strips of land divided by deep furrows, creating a corrugated surface called 'ridge and furrow', still traceable on site today.

The park is at the heart of Northfield Town Centre and greatly valued by the local community and each year hosts Northfield Carnival.  It has a well-balanced landscape combining open grassland, ornamental gardens and great facilities for sport and play.


Benefiting from recent investment in the local infrastructure, Victoria Common has great facilities that offer something for everyone including two Children’s play areas, outdoor gym equipment, Multi-use Games Area, Tennis Courts, Walk 2km route and football pitches. For more gentle relaxation the new picnic garden is ideal.

A range of food retail outlets are available in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre next to the park, and also Northfield Town Centre located only a two minute walk away

Public toilets are available at Grosvenor Shopping Centre.

The park is very popular as a venue for both community and corporate events. To find out more about using one of our parks for an event please visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/parkevents

The Friends of Victoria Common (http://www.northfieldecocentre.org/community/friends-of-victoria-common work with Northfield Eco Centre (http://www.northfieldecocentre.org/ ) to organise activities and events in the park.
