Parks & Open Spaces

With over 1,500 acres of parks and open spaces in Solihull and 16 Green Flag Parks, there is plenty to see and do, no matter where you are. It’s easy to understand why our motto is "Urbs in Rure", meaning "Town in the Country".

We want to support you in playing an active role in looking after your local park, here are just a few of the ways you can get involved:

Meet Horace


Introducing Solihull’s new park mascot, Horace the hedgehog! Horace will be on signs promoting the benefits of our parks for physical and mental wellbeing and championing biodiversity across the borough. Your litter picking efforts help keep Horace and his friends safe, healthy and their areas of residence litter free! Horace was named after Horace Brueton, who gifted Brueton Park to SMBC in 1944.

A Prickly Partnership

Solihull Council is now working closely with Solihogs Hedgehog Rescue to raise awareness about how to protect and rehabilitate hedgehogs during the winter season and beyond. Councillor Mackiewicz met with Alison to help release two healthy hedgehogs – Horace and Acorn – that recovered in Alison’s care, back into one of Solihull’s nature reserves. “By taking small steps to make your garden hedgehog friendly and contacting us if you find an unwell or injured hedgehog, we can all work together to protect hedgehogs from decline.” - Alison (Solihogs)
