Powell’s Pool is approximately 28 acres (11 hectares) in size, and is the largest pool in Sutton Park. Originally built to power an 18th century watermill, it is located at the Boldmere Entrance to the park. At different times, the mill was used to provide power for a variety of industrial processes, including rolling steel for pens.
Miller & Carter is close by and offers excellent views across the pool. Angling is permitted in the pool; the main species of fish found here are Roach, Tench and Pike. Watersports and boating are available through various clubs and organizations.
We have teamed up with the clubs at the pool to provide Rowing, Canoeing, Kayaking and Paddleboarding from the club facilities.
As an AALA accredited centre we are really privileged to run paddlesports on a great venue that has so much to offer Birmingham.
