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.

  • Is not easy to reach because it is reserved but there are buses that leave you in the same Sefton Park Avenue! are almost 4km of pure air, paths, ponds and everything very well taken care! just be there in rl yesterday and deserves much worth seeing it! can take slgo even on Sunday at the end of the Park, which also displays remote control boats you relaxing to watch them! everything is wrapped in a very familiar atmosphere! there are free toilets and pretty good care in the middle of the park approx. totally inadvisable walk from Liverpool's Anglican cathedral, that is what we did! is very far! is best combined with buses and look at maps!

  • 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.
