Handsworth Park

Introduction


Handsworth Park occupies over 63 acres in the centre of Handsworth and is a welcome oasis for the many people who visit the area. The park has been at the heart of the community for the past 100 years and following it's restoration during 2004 and 2006 continues to be popular with families, dog-walkers and school children (for more information on the re development of the park please refer to the attached document at the foot of this page).

The park has played host to a variety of both Council and Community organised events - from Vaisakhi with its huge processions to the Marcus Garvey Festival with music and entertainment. The Classroom in the Park attracts families and children to enjoy the history, fauna and flora of the park.
