Sefton Park

UK»England»Merseyside»Liverpool»Sefton Park

The magnificent 200-acre Sefton Park looks like a natural landscape rather than a man-made park. In spring the sight of millions of golden daffodils around the lake draws residents from across the city and carpets of bluebells give an impression of rural permanence.

The park is also home to the famous Palm House, a Grade II listed victorian glasshouse that has been restored to its former glory. Amongst the parks other features are a boating lake. The park also features many distinctive curved paths and driveways and many indigenous British trees. It was originally part of the Royal Park of Toxteth, until the city council bought the land from Lord Sefton in 1866.

The Park design is based on circular, oval and marginal footpaths, framing the green spaces, with two natural watercourses flowing into the 7-acre man-made lake.

The parkland itself included a deer park and the strong water theme was reflected by the presence of pools, waterfalls and steppingstones. The Park, its exclusive villas and ornamentation reflected the grandeur of the City during its mid Victorian period when Liverpool was the second City of the Empire.
