In Liverpool City Region we are blessed with an abundance of outdoor spaces. We have 200 acres of parkland under 15 minutes from the city centre at Sefton Park, all reachable by Merseyrail. We’ve pretty beaches on both sides of the water. At Crosby Beach you’ll find, ‘Another Place’, stunning sculptural artwork by Antony Gormley and over at National Trust’s Formby Beach you can meet furry friends at the Red Squirrel Reserve.

In Wirral you’ll find picturesque Birkenhead Park and the Hilbre Islands.
