Work to create the first new urban park in Birmingham for over 125 years is set to begin this week as Cllr Timothy Huxtable, Cabinet Member from Transport, Environment and Regeneration, plants the first of 400 new trees.

Featuring formal lawns, public squares, water features and planted gardens, the 6.9 acre Eastside City Park will stretch from the city centre out into Eastside, past Curzon Street Station and Millennium Point.

Funded by Birmingham City Council the £11.77m park adjoins the current development site for the new Birmingham City University (BCU) campus, and has been designed to sit alongside the Government's proposed High Speed 2 Station.
