PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It's been 50 years since King Kong loomed large over Birmingham's Bull Ring Shopping Centre. The 20ft statue was a sight to behold in the 1970s. And now, to celebrate the city being the host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Cordia Blackswan is bringing the statue home once again. This time a replica of Nicholas Monro’s sculpture will be housed in his very own pop-up park: King Kong Park at Commonwealth Row. The park will bring together the local community together with athletes, visitors and tourists in a festival-style celebration of the city. It will be the perfect stop for selfies.
