Friends of Selly Oak Park
Opened in 1899 Selly Oak Park is the largest public park in the Selly Oak district of Birmingham,UK. Selly Oak park is made up of over 30 acres of a medieval deer park, later part of Weoley Park Farm, all a gift to the district from the Gibbins Family (of Birmingham Battery Company fame). The park provides a pleasant oasis in a busy part of the City, with characteristic views of its neighbours, the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the University of Birmingham. The park has recently been awarded Green Flag 2013-14 status!
Founded in 2006, the Friends of Selly Oak Park acts as a voice for the park, representing its needs and the needs of its users. They have received Green Flag Award status & are a member of the Birmingham Heritage Forum.
