Slipway to the lake, Babb’s Mill Recreation Ground, Kingshurst, east Birmingham
It was associated with a boathouse, shown on the 2015 A-Z but not on old maps up to 1991 and not there now. Now there are a couple of car parks accessed from Fordbridge Road, a former turning area for boat trailers, and a small skate park. The fenced platform on the right has a picnic table and a board illustrating the lake's bird life. The River Cole follows its own separate course among the trees on the opposite shore.
