Birmingham suburban floral trails in previous years

In previous years there was a Floral Trail in Kings Heath. One year they had a display on Longbridge Island. And in Olympic and Paralympic years, they had pieces in Cannon Hill Park. Am not aware of any this summer though!

You won't find any of these Floral features around the Birmingham suburbs now in 2019. They were there in past years. Kings Heath used to have its own Floral Trail from its BID team. Acocks Green is in Bloom most spring and summers each year. Cannon Hill Park looks lovely with its displays of flowers in the warmer months. Items similar to the former City Centre Floral Trails of past summers. Some had even previously been in the City Centre before! 

 

Guitars on York Road in Kings Heath during Summer 2012. Was where the Kings Heath Walk of Fame would have been. Cash Convertors was in the building which used to be the Ritz Ballroom. But a fire there in 2013 led to its demolition and a replacement building has yet to be built there. 

Enjoy Kings Heath was in Kings Heath Village Square in the Autumn of 2012. A few years later they moved it to the corner of Howard Road and Alcester Road in 2015. It was still there in 2018.

Cannon Hill Park has had Olympic and Paralympic inspired pieces during the summers of 2012 (London) and 2016 (Rio). 

Olympic Breeze was in Cannon Hill Park near Edgbaston during the summer of 2012. It won Gold at the RHS Tatton Flower Show in 2012. Inspired by Sir Ben Ainslie. At the time a 4 time Gold medal winner at the Olympics. Seen on a rainy day. 

Was a lot of Olympic / Paralympic inspired pieces in Cannon Hill Park during the Summer of 2016. This was called One Small Step. Was Birmingham City Council's entry to the Chelsea Flower Show in 2016. Cofton Nursery had recycled some Wicker pieces from 2012. Including their Usain Bolt sculpture. 

During the Summer of 2013 Birmingham was taking part in Entente Florale Europe. At Longbridge Island was this Mini and yellow flowers. Near Bournville College. Was before Austin Park and Longbridge Town Centre opened. 

Whistles on the Acocks Green Village Green during 2015. A temporary sculpture, its not there now. But a permanent Acocks Green Village sign is now in the middle.
