  • Beautiful sculpture situated alongside the m62, beautiful walk, surrounded by woods with pathways, great to blow the cobwebs off!!!! 
  • What a waste of money this was, it doesnt light up, it doesnt do anything its so boring. Its a lovely walk upto the DREAM wth lots of different things for your children to look at & do, 
  • Lovely walk which we have done a couple of times, this time though we struggled to park as the pub car park is barricaded off. The walk itself is great a little steep in parts, but the views are great...  more »

  • This area is worth a look for a couple of hours. Well maintained paths and woodland. There are no facilities,(toilets, cafes etc) on this reclaimed brown field site.
  • Nice walk up to Dream from several different paths. Unusual find for the area. Only issue are the broken bottles/glass found by the face, need to keep a close eye on young kids running around. Would still recommend a visit.
  • Fabulous and serene. A brilliant example of what can be done with old industrial sites with good engagement of the local population. Well done to StHelens and all its residents. Could do with a bit more care and cleaning because of the "sad" few who leave used nappies and dog mess. But still well worth a visit.
  • Took my two daughters here a early 2016. Large parkland, shame it's right next to the noisy motorway... Windy at the exposed monument. I think it would be lovely on a warm summer's day.
  • Nightmare on the approaches. Litter and loads of used doggie bags hanging from the bushes and lay in the grass, excrement on the paths, plus rotting and wrecked benches. One star for the view away from the dump !
