  • This park has improved so much in the last few years. Beautiful trees. Lakes are full of wildlife and the visitors centre is a plus. Great place for the kids ,dogs and families
  • This has to be one of the Best Parks in Europe. Thanks to the amazing commitment of the staff and volunteers I enjoy this facility every week of the year. Would really hope that everyone in the area could respect this place for what it is, an amazing bit of social commitment from our, not so distant ancestors. Great foresight to gift to the whole community of Birkenhead. Get down there and enjoy.
  • Very nice areas and mostly clean. A great place to spend some time in.
  • Absolutely fantastic park. Surprising how large it is. Lovely walks and it's really well maintained. Always people there and occasionally events like funfairs.
  • Ideal for dog walking and taking the kids. There is a safe playground and quieter areas for letting your dogs have a run. Great shame though that the bins aren't emptied as often as maybe they could be and then the irresponsible dog owners may start to pick up after their dogs.
