Friends of Fox Hollies Park – Easter Litter Pick this Saturday

Our near neighbours – Friends of Fox Hollies Park are organising this great event this Saturday, see below. Fresh air, exercise and doing something really worthwhile for the community. Its a lovely green space – here is a little history:

Fox Hollies Park – In 1929 Birmingham City Parks Department acquired Fox Hollies Park, some 40 acres of beautiful park land which was valued then at £250. Winding through the middle of the park is Westley Brook, on which once stood Broomhall Mill, one of a string of mills that ran through the area.  A main feature of the park is the large pool, which boasts a great variety of fish. There are some small wooded areas throughout the park, enhanced in 1989 by the planting of some 3,000 trees.
