About the park

Queen’s Park was established in 1898 to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. It occupies a 10-acre site in Harborne and has always been a focal point for recreation during its 120-year history.

The land was originally part of a large swathe of farmland that dominated the area but when a site was needed for the park it was bought by the Harborne Charity Fete Committee and donated to the city council.

Nowadays it has a large open space that people use for a range of recreational activities or to just sit and relax for a while. There are also two tennis courts as well as a playground for young children and a basketball court.

The park is also very popular with dog walkers and joggers. 

A recent development has been the addition of a flood basin which provides the park with a wetland habitat.
