Cotteridge Park is a public park in Cotteridge, Birmingham, England. Cotteridge Park is one of the Victorian parks in the city, set in 22 acres (89,000 m2), and located in the Bournville ward [1] with an active community support group.[2] It contains basketball and tennis courts, an orchard, an amphitheatre, playgrounds, a skateboard park, events space and copses. It had an on-site parkkeeper prior to funding for the role being withdrawn in October 2017.[3]

The Sons of Rest had a building in the park; it was demolished in the late 1990s.[4]

The Friends of Cotteridge Park was established in 1997.[5]

Community Building[edit]

The Friends of Cotteridge Park group secured permission[6] and funding for a small community building in the park. Construction began on 25 November 2019 and was expected to take 20 weeks but was delayed due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.
