4.7
#1 of 17 in Parks in Liverpool
Sefton Park is a serene public park where you can stroll, jog, or bike along the pathways while enjoying the surrounding plant life. Spacious areas are available for sports, or you can boat on the lake. Search for the Peter Pan statue, Old Nick’s Caves, the aviary viewing point, or Bandstand, which is said to have been the inspiration for The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band. For drinks and snacks, head to one of the cafes. The park is easily reached by car, as there are several parking lots available, or the train stop is just a short walk from the site.

    Since childhood, I have been a regular visitor to this park. It has changed very little over the years. The revamped cafe is a good addition as is the ice cream shop near the lake. I was very sad when...  more »

    Huge green area to disconnect from the city, do not miss visiting the Palm House, it is beautiful. There is rarely a weekend without any kind of event going one here.  more »

    Sefton Park really has something for everyone; we love to wander through. The highlight for me is the Palm House - restored perfectly and is the jewel in the crown of this wonderful park.  more »

  • Wonderful place to take the kids on a nice day. Acres of grass and gardens to walk around and most weekends there are events going on in, near or around the palm house. Large spread of city bikes around the park too so you can just grab a bike and adventure around the park.
  • Absolutely stunning park, in my opinion the best in the city! It is always busy, from family days out to students doing uni work and people of all ages running around or through the park training for an event. This is a park you can go to in any season, not just when it's sunny! It has a cafe in the centre, a large play area for kids, tennis courts, the lake, and there are events held here throughout the year too, such as the Liverpool International Music Festival and the Liverpool 5k and 10k. My favourite park and full of great photo opportunities too.
  • Beautiful park. Perfect for walking around. Lovely landscapes and scenery. Lots of beautiful blossom trees. Great for children and dogs and picnics. Well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful park.. the road around it, is beautiful... Gives an amazing fun drive experience
  • Who.doesnt love Sefton Park. This place is beautiful. Great place to chill on a sunny day. Lovely to take the dog for a walk (as long as you pick up after his waste) there are great facilities. Tennis courts. Bowling Green childrens play area and so much more. Beautiful green space
