Introduction

KHExitA cleaner, greener and more attractive Kings Heath is created each summer through the development of a circular Floral Trail.

A blaze of colour greets those entering the shopping centre from the direction of the city centre through a series of railing baskets over the railway bridge.

Hanging baskets, more railing baskets, plant tubs and flags then continue to contribute to a real feel-good factor!

 

The Floral Trail links together:

  • WelcomeToKingsHeathSignFlatterthe largest shopping centre in south Birmingham with
  • the Green Flag award winning Kings Heath Park containing the former Gardeners’ World TV Gardens and
  • historic Highbury Park containing the largest variety of trees of any Birmingham park.

The trail currently lasts from June to October.

Future plans will seek to develop a permanent year round trail.
