Bordered by the Aston expressway and Aston Villa football club, Aston Hall and Park offers an oasis of calm and tranquillity that can be freely enjoyed by everyone.
This magnificent park forms an idyllic setting for the Jacobean mansion. The park provides a backdrop of mature trees and shrubs, sweeping avenues and constantly changing planting schemes.
Today's park is a remnant of the 934-acre Deer Park and forms the key formal areas surrounding the house. Many of the features visible in the park today have been created as part of the park improvements by the civic society in the 1930s.
Aston Hall and Park provides something for everyone, from the colourful bedding by the Hall, to the play area constructed in 2002 providing play facilities for children of all ages.
Due to the site's importance in the city and country, the gardens have been registered on the Historic Parks Register. In line with a park of this importance, ambitious plans have been drawn up to look at the park and House and to redefine its historic importance.
Aston Hall and park sit in the heart of Aston ward and as such forms a focal point for community events, from Aston Pride to a mini Olympics for the local school children. To formalise these contacts a 'Friends of Aston Hall and Park' group was formed during 2002, which meets on a regular basis to discuss issues within the hall and park.
