This Birmingham park is the first major, new park in the city centre for more than 130 years. It is a key project promoted by the Big City Plan and the Eastside Masterplan.

Work began on the park in August 2011, adding 2.73 hectares (6.75 acres) of green space to the city centre, extending Park Street Gardens and taking in the former car park in front of Millennium Point, through to Cardigan Street.

This park was proposed in the early 2000s as a focus for the Curzon Street area of Eastside’s regeneration. Working with Advantage West Midlands (the former Regional Development Agency) the Birmingham City Council secured funding through European Regional Development Funds (ERDF) to buy and clear the land and buildings to create the park.

The park has greatly increased the amount of green space within the City Centre, providing a visitor attraction alongside the Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum. It will also include a Science Garden funded by and in association with the museum.
