- About the park
Pype Hayes is one of Birmingham’s larger parks, covering more than 100 acres. It contains a number of ornamental gardens, with many bedding areas and a number of grade II listed buildings feature at the location, including Pype Hayes Hall.
Gardens feature heavily in the park, with an older traditional garden in the vicinity of the Hall incorporating flower beds and dwarf yew hedges, and also a garden with a modern twist planted for the millennium.
In the western section of the park, there is a fish and duck pond, where many species of birds can be found, notably Mallard Ducks, Canada Geese and Mute Swans. Fishing is also available on the pond.
The park is the setting for an annual bonfire and funfair to mark Bonfire Night on 5 November, and also features sporting and leisure facilities.
The northern section of the park is made up of mown lawns and young trees have been planted, making it a peaceful place to take a walk.
