This is a lovely park. probably the 'poshest' park in Liverpool as it's in a really nice area. The two car parks are both pretty small but you can also park on the roads nearby. Two huge fields for football, kite flying etc and then some lovely gardens to walk through. There is also a much improved childrens palyground ( the old one was lethal!) with one of those great spiders webs, some japanese gardens and a bowling green. Only things I would change are the toilets which are revolting and the cafe which I think is very shabby for the way it could be! All parks should look to the millhouses park in sheffield for inspiration for their cafes!
Built in 1828 the Mansion House is described in the Liverpool Heritage Bureau 'Buildings of Liverpool' as 'asymmetrical and of two storeys in the Georgian tradition'. Today it is no longer a private house and contains offices of the Council, including the Housing Market Renewal Initiative and City Safe.
Situated at the centre of the park, this area comprises of three stlyles of gardens, one of ehich is the a Flower Garden. Originally a rose garden, it now provides a quiet area where visitors can absorb the scents and beauty of traditional planting schemes. The other two gardens are the Old English Garden and the Japanese Garden.
Situated in the Ornamental Gardens, this glasshouse displays examples from the city's temperate and tropical Botanical collections.
There are plenty of things are and thepark is beautifuk, it has tennis courts too, and cafes etc..
One of the finest parks in Liverpool. A lake. Botanic Gardens. Mansion House. Worth a visit.
A lovely park. Really enjoy taking the kids here. There's a reasonably priced cafe, a lake with ducks/geese and a swing park for the kids, which has lots of different activities for them to do. It's kept nice throughout the year and has a few interesting sites and buildings. It's easy to find your way around too and makes for a pleasant stroll when the weather is right.
I love taking the stroll in the roses garden in the summer. Very nice place to go jogging and it feels safe too.
Never been to the cafe.
Beautiful grounds of parkland with a variety of things to do. you have a childrens play area , the chinese gardens are delightful as you can walk thru the beautiful colours and interesting scenery . you can feed the ducks in the pond and theres also a cafe to get refreshments..
Located five minutes up the road from Allerton Road past All Hallows church. Really Pretty Park to visit. Pinic area avaliable. Japanese Garden well worth a visit. Cafe recently revamped selling tea,coffee and ice cream. Good place to chill away from the noise and bustle of the city. Lake full of ducks.
A good all round park with something for everyone young and older. There is a playground for young children.They have even erected a table tennis table. You just bring your own bat and ball. The more formal gardens are well kept. tThere is an area which is dog free that at the moment of writing this review is covered in daffodils and beautiful magnolias and cherry blossom trees. The cafe could maybe do with a bit of improvement but it serves good value food. It caters for dogs with water bowls outside. A lake full of ducks, geese etc. In my opinion the best park in Liverpool.
