Which Parks Should I Visit in Liverpool?
There are few simpler pleasures in life than a relaxing stroll in the park when the sun comes out. Parks are often essential community hubs, providing open spaces for families to spend time together, people to meet and everyone to enjoy some fresh air. You’ll be pleased to know there are lots of parks in Liverpool suitable for so many different activities. Whether you live in the city centre, on the outskirts in Maghull or by the beach in Formby, here we’ve highlighted five of the best Liverpool parks.
Covering some 235 acres, this is the biggest park in Liverpool city centre. As well as the open fields, there’s plenty of other things to see in Sefton Park, including a lake, bandstand and historic Victorian palm house. There’s even a cafe where you can grab a drink and a small bite, as well as a children’s playground with swings, slides, roundabouts and climbing frames.
A beautiful riverside park with many strings to its bow, Otterspool Park is a hit come rain or shine. With great views out across the Mersey towards the Wirral, the park is home to a pleasure promenade, adventure park and skatepark. From play areas to mini golf and even sports and leisure facilities, the Trans Pennine Trail cuts right across the waterfront too if you want to pick that up for a while on foot or bike.
A scenic spot where the fallen leaves and magnificent colours are particularly impressive when you walk through the trees in autumn, Calderstones Park features a boating pond, cafe and Japanese garden. It’s also home to the Linda McCartney Playground, a cafe and the Calder Stones. Our Imagine Place development is less than four miles from the park, where you’ll find an incredible selection of 4 bedroom family homes for sale.
Crosby Coastal Park
One of the most scenic parks Liverpool has to offer, you’ll struggle to find more picturesque scenery anywhere in the North West than Crosby Coastal Park. The beachfront park boasts a number of gardens, a playground and boating lake, while you can also see Antony Gormley’s emotive Another Place sculpture. You can visit this wonderful spot whenever you like after you snap up a 3 or 4 bed home on our Sundial Place site just a couple of hours away.
Croxteth Hall and Country Park
Finishing with a lovely country park to the east of the city centre, Croxteth Hall is a historic Edwardian country house surrounded by attractive gardens. You can soak up the tranquil atmosphere as you go for a stroll around the sprawling grounds, following paths and trails through woodland and past pretty streams and ponds. If you have little ones, they’ll love the play area and the animals at the petting farm.
