The inspirational two-year project will maintain the integrity of the original garden design while making improvements to access, creating new signage and literature to reveal the garden’s rich heritage and appointing a Community & Engagement Officer to oversee public access and encourage local events and activities. We will also be able to open the gardens beyond our client delivery sessions to include some Fridays and weekends.
Players of the National Lottery are helping Thrive to give the gardens at Kings Heath Park a new lease of life and ignite the passions of individuals and communities to care for this much-valued historic site. This funding will secure and sustain the gardens for future generations.
This place is at the heart of the inner-city community and already a special and magical space for client gardeners. It’s so important that more people can access and enjoy the amazing surroundings, while caring for nature at the same time.Sarah Bowers, Regional Operations Manager

The gardens in Birmingham have a rich legacy. Formally known as the TV Gardens and the outside broadcast location for Pebble Mill, the site became a training ground for horticultural students at Pershore College. In 1996 Gardener’s World used the location for its popular TV programme and developed many new gardens with top designers such as Dan Pearson, Joe Swift and Bonita Bulaitis.
