Cotteridge Park is a public park in Cotteridge, Birmingham, England. Cotteridge Park is one of the Victorian parks in the city, set in 22 acres (89,000 m2), and located in the Bournville ward [1] with an active community support group.[2] It contains basketball and tennis courts, an orchard, an amphitheatre, playgrounds, a skateboard park, events space and copses. It had an on-site parkkeeper prior to funding for the role being withdrawn in October 2017.[3]

The Friends of Cotteridge Park was established in 1997 and celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017.
