About the park

An ‘oasis of calm’ is the perfect way to describe City Centre Gardens. Situated in the middle of Birmingham just a stone’s throw from the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, and close to the Library of Birmingham and the International Convention Centre, it is a great place for a stroll or a place to sit at lunchtime or in the evening. It offers small, scenic gardens with a range of well-tended shrubs and plants with easily accessible pathways and plenty of benches.

The City Centre Gardens was opened in 1993 and went on to win first prize from the Local Government News, Urban Green Space Awards for Street Design.
