Selly Oak Park, Birmingham - A wonderful open space!

Selly Oak Park is situated in Selly Oak, Birmingham.

In February 1899, Thomas Gibbins and his wife Emma Joel Gibbins (née Cadbury) donated “11 acres, 2 roods and 5 perches” of land “for ever”, arranging for the Park to be laid out.

The park was formally opened by the 88 year old Mrs.Gibbins on Easter Monday, 3 April 1899. The gift was marked by the naming of the adjacent Gibbins Road (formerly Old Lane).
