#1 of 21 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 »

  • What an amazing place. Makes a great day out. There's quite often events happening around so I'd recommend keeping tabs on the website. I love going for a walk or cycle around the park then eating at lark lane.
  • A place of interest and natural beauty, walk the dog, walk with friends.. get a coffee or ice-cream family friendly. Events throughout the year music festivals, food and drink, fireworks on bonfire night. Safe for joggers, fitness camps held here. A place for all seasons to explore besides greenery there are lakes, children's play area, tennis, bowling a hype of activity.
  • A beautiful park with a great design. See the palm house, go for a walk around the lake. If your visiting Liverpool and you have the time go for a visit, also check out Princes Park not far away.
  • Beautiful place. There's always something going on from music to food events, so it's nice for the whole family.
  • Wide open space. It has a palm house made of glass which has been restored, lots of different events go on in there from weddings to gigs. It has a massive lake and small cafe serving refreshments. Also a childrens play area. This park is big it's great for a stroll around whatever the weather. Oh and watch out for the joggers/runners/cyclist's they circle the park.
