One parent said on Facebook: “If you take kids there keep them close to the swings, don’t let them get near the top because there are too many needles on that side.”

“Never again unfortunately so dirty,” added another.

The park is covered in trash, from abandoned license plates to dirty diapers.

With the paths lined with shards of broken glass, it’s no surprise that most people only use the park as a shortcut, walking as fast as they can with their heads down.

A man who lives nearby, Majid, shared his frustration with the filthy state of the park.

He says Birmingham Mail“It’s a nice park, unfortunately some people don’t bother to clean up after them.

“The council comes over to help us clean up the park on a fairly regular basis, but the local college students often bring their chicken and chips and eat them near the benches and leave a big mess.”

The playground also smells terrible due to the piles of rotting food in the area.

The floor can often be seen covered in leftover vegetables, fruits, breads and snacks.

Because of the litter and the smell, locals refuse to set foot on the playground, leaving its porch and swings, which are in good condition, largely unvisited.

It is rated 2.9 stars on Google reviews, making it the lowest rated park in Birmingham.

Residents have already organized clean-up days to try to make the park more pleasant, but for now it is still being treated as a dump.
