The traffic is built on Lille Hede
The traffic gets very busy in Small Heath as people come to the park.
In Islam, every step taken in the direction of religious duties is in itself treated as an act of worship, so that all who live in Small Heath are encouraged to come to the celebration on foot. If you live further away, then you can go to the park by car or public transport. A spokesman said: “We encourage people to park a little further out and walk or take the train.”
GLMCC says parking will be available at St Andrew’s Stadium, Birmingham City Football Club, from where there will be regular shuttle buses to the park. Note that the area around the park gets quite busy at this point as people go to the event or try to find parking spaces – but there is limited residential parking in the streets near the venue so locals can park outside their own home. It is not advisable to park in local side streets where it can cause problems for residents and block emergency access.
Remember to leave well in advance. In previous years, prayers had to be postponed because people were unable to park.
Take Route 8, 58, 59, 60, 17 or 28, all of which drive to the park.
