Wirral Wildlife: Heritage Walk

This tour will take you on an exploration of the industrial history of the former railway goods yard, and how this contributed to the wildlife biodiversity of the park. This will focus particularly on the brick-making and railway operations that shaped the park that stands today.

A short walk of approximately 600 metres, but there is so much to see in this short distance.

Tea and cakes will be provided at the end of the tour.

*The lower half of the park is disabled-accessible*

Car and bike parking is available on site and there are good public transport links available.
