Calderstones Park, Liverpool

(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Calderstones Park is a public park in Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom. The 126acre park is mainly a family park. Within it there are a variety of different attractions including a playground, a botanical garden and places of historical interest. There is a lake in the park with geese and ducks, and the mansion house, which features a café and a children's play area.HistoryOriginally part of the 1583acre expanse of the Manor of Allerton, around 1726 the area now known as Calderstones Park was sold by its owners to settle family debts. Eventually, the Liverpool merchant Thomas Martin became owner. He added to the estate before selling the area to Joseph Need Walker, a lead shot manufacturer with business interests in Liverpool. Walker acquired the estate in 1825 when the principal building was known as "The Old House". By 1828 this old farmhouse had been swept aside to make way for the mansion, Calderstones House.In 1875 the estate was sold to Charles MacIver for £52,000. A Liverpool shipping magnate, he had joined Samuel Cunard in establishing the British and North American Royal Steam Packet Company — later and better known as Cunard Line. Charles MacIver retired in 1874 and his younger sons, Henry and Charles, took the reins.

  • The most beautiful park in Liverpool in my opinion. Particularly good for dog walkers as there are lots of hound lovers about the place. The cafe is also great. Highly recommended.
  • Excellent place for the kids. Walking. Running. Football. Also there is a little fair ground here with kiddies rides.
  • The best park in Liverpool! Walled gardens, play area, cafe, Cheshire ice cream parlour. Loads of space to explore. Love it!
  • Lovely park in a residential area of Liverpool. Beautiful gardens and lots of open space, it is very popular with young families and people out for a stroll
  • Park at probably it's most stunning, on a mild autumn day.
