The original JFK memorial was commissioned at the request of Alderman Sir Frank Price, the Lord Mayor of Birmingham in 1964-65. An Irish Catholic fundraising group led by Rev. Fr. Maguire, Joe McGlynn and Billy Hestor raised the original £5000 required through the generosity of the Irish Community. It was unveiled by Mr John Mclloy the Irish Ambassador to Britain on 8th July 1968. The rededication of the JFK memorial was unveiled by Monsignor P. Browne Parish Priest of St. Anne's and designated representative of Archbishop Longley and Monsignor J. Daniel McHugh Director of the Regeneration of the Archdiocese of Birmingham 23rd February 2013.

The Golden Lion Built in the sixteenth century, this building originally stood in Digbeth where it is believe to have been the Clergy House and School of the Guild of Deritend. In 1911 the building was taken down brick by brick and rebuilt in Cannon Hill Park to allow for re-development. As a result of a structural survey it was revealed that the frame of the building had serious areas of decay and that the building was structurally unsound. It is in a urgent need of major re-furbishment. At present the Council is exploring the possibility of moving the building back to the Digbeth area as part of the Eastside regeneration.
