Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games moves into Victoria Park

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games moves into Victoria Park

With just under 3 weeks to go to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, the time has come to handover Victoria Park to the organisers so that they have time to prepare it for our competitors and spectators arriving to watch Lawn Bowls and Para Lawn Bowls.

This handover will see a series of changes to the access into the park and the car park as they step up preparations and increase security around the venue.

From 4 – 13 July, park users will need to enter Victoria Park through the end of the old tennis courts car park.  From 13 July, the access into the park will be through the Avenue Road pedestrian entrance, with the old tennis court car park closed to the public until 11 August.

You will also start to see platforms and seating stands, with the first platform now being constructed at Victoria Park. The map of Victoria Park shows green directional arrows showing how you can currently access the park, with the area in red showing the area now used by Birmingham 2022 and the blue arrows showing the route in and out of the park for park users – see attached image.
