Woodgate Valley Visitor Centre
Bartley Green, Birmingham
This three and a half mile route follows 500 year-old hedged lanes into the beautiful Woodgate Valley Country Park. Set in 450 acres, it houses many different habitats. With a mixture of mature hedgerows, meadows, woodland, small ponds and the Bourn Brook running right through its heart, it offers a varied terrain and a rich landscape to explore. The hay meadows in summer are full of buttercups which create an amazing sight. Originally a mosaic of farms and smallholdings, the park has retained much of its rural character. You may even spot woodland birds such as woodpeckers and tree creepers along the way creating the perfect family ride out.
