  • This was a pleasant surprise, walking through the iron gates at the beginning of the park, saw plenty of gray squirrels coming up and down the trees and letting you take photos if you are quiet.  more »

  • Great place for walks, with dogs and humans alike. Nice pathways throughout the park, with open field spaces too. Come with a lake and large woodland area, so don't forget your Monkey nuts for the squirrels and seed for the geese/swan.
  • lots to do. Plenty of open green space for picnics, sunbathing and playing. There's a beautiful lake, 'fishing allowed, with permit' Playground (child friendly surface) with swings, etc. Climbing rocks. Everything a park should have and more. Can't guarantee nice weather.
  • Birkenhead Park is a very good way to get away, from the usual ordinary town streets and the town centre which is my hometown it's like suddenly being able to get to see something that resembles a little bit more of a countryside view with green grass covered fields and lots of old big trees and a lake with a highly popular and decorative bridge covered with tiles and being able to go on it and see the freshwater fish swimming in the lake below the bridge, then there's the rocks in Birkenhead Park which you can get to walk up to the top and see the surrounding area of the park and it attracts a lot of different types of people who are regularly using the place to get fit by jogging or strolling and walking their dogs as well as cyclists racing through the park in competition with each other, it's just a way to enjoy using it. And you can also seeing anglers by the lake catching fish. It is just a great way to escape from normal daily life in an old town centre.
  • Lovely park. Good for children of all ages. Well maintained. However, evenings seem to attract teenagers of dubious nature.
  • Wide open spaces free to enjoy being there, dogs are really into the place. There are rules to keep to but nobody seems to get uptight if you break one. The park has children's playground which has a fence around it, also a cafe and we'll kept toilets. Spend as long as you like and enjoy the fresh air.
