Grove Park, Birmingham
|Location||Harborne, Birmingham, England|
|Operated by||Birmingham City Council|
The park was historically the grounds of The Grove, an 18th-century Georgian house.
One of Birmingham's first MPs, Thomas Attwood, lived at The Grove between 1823 and 1846. Attwood is immortalised in a bronze statue which formerly sat on the steps of Chamberlain Square, until the latter's redevelopment in 2017.
The house and grounds were bequeathed to Birmingham City Council, the house was demolished in 1963, after which the grounds became a public space. A panelled anteroom of the drawing room at The Grove was saved from destruction and acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The room was used to display Kendrick's collection of blue and white ceramics.
