  • Read the political history of Liverpool in the 70s and you will see that thanks to just a few hard line unionists, this building was all but lost. Ian Lowes closed it down and took all the gardeners j...  more »

  • Such a beautiful park which spreads over a vast area. The lake is really beautiful and it is really relaxing to just stroll around and enjoy nature. We had a walk by the lake and loved seeing the people walking their dogs or just enjoying a stroll with friends and family.
  • Been coming to this park my whole life and it's always a lovely place to come and sit with friends, walk the dog or just come for a wander to think. The park is popular with runners and people training for 5k races as there's a 5k route to jog. Two decent cafes, a lake and several big fields mean that the park is never too crowded. The palm house at the centre of the park is a wonderful place, beautiful building and you can go inside to see the tropical plants most of the time. They also host some great little markets and craft fairs there.
  • Lovely afternoon walk. Autumnal colours and a stop for a coffee with a view over the lake. Lots of families enjoying the fresh air. A fab place and Liverpool at it's best
  • Great place for a walk/run. Has a park for the kids and they do big event on their in the summer. 5K fun run
  • Beautifully laid out Park with sweeping paths around a range of water features. Well restored palm house with Peter Pan amongst many statues. Don't miss the cupid statue in the centre of the park. Occasionally used as a venue for music, fireworks and festivals.
