Manor Farm Park once formed part of the grounds of Northfield Manor, and was given to the City of Birmingham by the Cadbury family in the 1950s. The park comprises around 50 acres of public open space with woodlands, meadows and a lake. These are home to over 30 species of birds, together with a variety of 6 mammals (such as short tailed voles) and invertebrates. In Spring and Summer the Great and Top Meadows are transformed by a spectacular carpet of native wildflowers.
Over lockdown in Spring, 1280 tonnes of rubbish and litter was removed from Birmingham parks. That’s the equivalent of 200 elephants! This was an increase of 220% from the same time in 2019 when 400 tonnes (equivalent to 60 elephants) were collected. Like other green spaces across the city, litter is a problem in Manor Farm Park.
Explore the park, pick up any litter you find, discover why single-use plastic isn’t that fantastic and how YOU can reduce the amount of plastic you use.
