DescriptionCannon Hill Park is located in Edgbaston, Birmingham, about 10 minutes jog from the main University of Birmingham campus. The road loop around the boating lake is approximately 1 mile long and ideal for doing mile reps or paced runs. The park is linked to Pebble Mills playing fields which are good for longer grass efforts, and there are also small wooded sections.

If you follow the Rea Valley through the playing fields and continue south, you can link back to the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, just south of Bournville, which you can follow back to the university, or there are a number of fields/parks west of Bournville (Bourneville Park, Valley Parkway etc.) which will eventually lead you back to the Bristol Road, Selly Oak Park, and the University.
