About the park

Offers a blend of fascinating green spaces to explore with recreational and activity areas, Senneleys Park caters for everyone’s taste.

On one hand the spacious park is filled with mature trees, large expanses of grassland and well-defined paths through conservation areas.

On the other hand, it is well stocked with outdoor exercise equipment, sports facilities and play areas for younger children making it a perfect location for those looking to improve their fitness or just have fun.

The park is actually made up of land that was once agricultural fields belonging to Senneleys Farm, which is recorded in the history books as early as 1518. Before that time, it was part of the Manor of Weoley, which is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

The land was bought by the city council in February 1935 and has been in community use as a park since 1936.

As well as the day-to-day activities it has also played host to local football matches, music events and an annual bonfire and fun fair spectacular.
