Eastside City Park Opened!

Eastside City Park was officially opened by Birmingham City Council’s Leader, Sir Albert Bore, last month.

Although not technically in Digbeth, the park borders our little part of the city, so naturally, Digbeth Residents Association (DRA) was involved in the event. Thankfully, the weather held back while students from BOA performed live music on the stage, and urban dance routines in the plaza.

DRA had a stand at the opening, and talked to members of the public, as well as Councillor Bore and Deputy Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Anita Ward. Members of DRA are pictured below with Albert and Anita – thank you to Lee Eezee Rider for the image.

Eastside City Park is the first new city centre park in Birmingham for more than 130 years, and DRA is proud to have been involved in this event. To learn more about the park, visit the Birmingham City Council website.
