The arcade was called Fletcher's and the one down towards the island was owned and run by the smart family when I left the UK my friend Sam Smart owned and ran the arcade.My Aunt lived in a road at the far end of the "Leach Green" as she called it. Sometimes my Mother used to go the extra bus stop to the terminus and we could play on the "Penny Falls" in the arcade for a little while, that was a big treat in those days!!!
The park is called Coften Park spent many a afternoon in the summer there when I was young there was a entrance at the end of my street, Birmingham City has a nursery there for growing plants for the islands and such.I first visited the Lickeys as child of 5 or 6, went with dad and Mr Long in his Austin 7, smelling of leather and petrol, I thought it grand, later every Sunday dad would take me to the Sunday Foot ball meets, on the park over looking the tram terminus. We visited Mr Wigen, who kept the pigeons and ate his home made ice cream, walked up to the fun fair, up the steep log steps, and later, when a youth would catch the bus with my latest love to court in the woods, or sit in the fields at the wood edge in the sun, happy, memories of a golden time when money was't everything, but kindness and happiness was.

The Lickey Hills visitor centre is there now, Warren Lane as you say left just before the church then left again. A great place to take the kids or grandkids.That same area had a club there also but to get there by car you had to go to the top of Rose Hill and turn left and left again and drive down a dirt road.
