Birkenhead Park

Birkenhead Park is widely acknowledged to be the first publicly funded park in Britain, and a model for New York’s Central Park. The park dates from 1847 and was designed to mimic an idealised country landscape with open meadows, woodland and lakes.

Following a £11.25 million restoration, the park was officially re-opened in 2007.  The picturesque Swiss Bridge, Boat House and grand entrance were renovated and a £1million glass pavilion withcafé and exhibition gallery added.

The park has a proud sporting heritage, with two cricket clubs, a rugby club, tennis courts, bowling greens and football pitches.

Events taking place in Birkenhead Park include the Birkenhead Park Festival of Transport.
