#3 of 8 in Parks in Blackpool
Stanley Park is known as Liverpool's most significant and largest park. The 45 hectare (111 acre) park was created in 1870. Today it offers an array of outdoor activities. Rent a bike and receive the first hour free. Whether by foot or by bike, you will encounter many formal gardens, such as the fragrant Rose Garden. Stop to relax by the boating lake, which is frequented by anglers as well as local waterfowl. If you're looking for something more active, half of the park's landscape features sporting facilities, such as putting greens, bowling alleys, and tennis courts. The site also has many children's playgrounds. Check out the park's event schedule to see if you will happen upon a concert at the bandstand or a community event. If you choose to visit by car, the park offers free daily parking.

  • Something for everyone at Stanley park. Swing & play area for children. All weather sports, skateboard area. Boating on the park lake, motor, rowing & pedal boats. Art deco licensed cafe, bowling greens & miniture/crazy golf courses. Excellent floral displays in the different gardens, expansive green areas for pic-nics & sunbathing. There are several glass hot-houses featuring many unusual & tropical plants. A bandstand, situated near the lake often features entertainment & live bands.
  • An absolutely lovely step back in time to the heyday of parks. Wonderfully maintained spaces and formal garden areas. Free parking adjacent to a fantastic cafe where you can prebook a traditional afternoon tea.
  • Really great park, great open spaces and sports facilities. Wonderful for walking dogs. Great lake with beautiful birds to enjoy. Clean and well maintained.
  • Lovely space. BUT avoid the toilets. They are the dirtiest most disgusting Ill maintained I have come across outside Asia!
  • Great park. Very friendly staff. Cafe a bit too expensive, food is great though.
