Walking in Handsworth Park

The Greener Birmingham Coalition – individuals, organisations and groups committed to working together to improve the natural environment in Birmingham – invite you to join us at our Greener Birmingham Day Out event on Sunday 24th June.

People will be walking and cycling along some of the fantastic green corridors of the city, visiting parks along the way, and documenting their journeys highlighting the best and noting where improvements are needed.

Community groups, friends of park groups, cycling and walking groups, are organising their own routes across the city.
