Great to see Brum cultural website, I Choose Birmingham, reviewing Midlands Arts Centre the MAC Food Market & Cannon Hill Park where the food market is located. I love trading on this wonderful monthly market and have done a review of it myself in the past, which i've just republished on this blog !
Why not drop by & visit the market to grab a wonderful array of phantasmagorical foodie fayre to go along with the healthy organic fruit & veg you've purchased from Vegetropolis stall then take it all off for a picnic on this great walk i've outlined below ?
Not only is Cannon Hill Park a wonderful Gem of Brum but if you walk along the lake starting at the MAC and keep going along this path (watch out for cyclists, skateboarders & skaters! ) with the woodland on your left and the river on your right you'll come to a point where the path veers off to the left up a hill with the end of the famous Moor Green Allotments on the left (complete with it's own onsite bar come social club) another Gem of Brum! Past the allotment gates right to the end of Holders Lane and turn right, follow the road around and next to the former Park Wardens house on the corner of Yew Tree Road you will see the entrance to the beautiful Highbury Park Arboretum, I can't recommend this wilder cousin of Cannon Hill park highly enough with it's collection of trees from around the world, backing on to the stunning Highbury Hall, long grassed meadows, history galore, old garden layouts with beautiful perennial plants, community gardens, bee keepers , great slopes to sledge down in the Winter, with proximity to Kings Heath High Street, this is just a beautiful place to chill & stroll .
