On Easter Monday 1847, the gates were opened to the very first publicly funded park in the world. Designed by Sir Joseph Paxton - Birkenhead Park was created to be the People's Garden - a place where the lowliest peasant to the British Monarch could stand together to enjoy a piece of the countryside in the middle of the city. In 1850, Fredrick Law Olmstead visited the park and with its inspiration, then went on to design and create what is arguably the most famous public park in the world - Central Park New York. In 2004 Birkenhead Park underwent an £11.8million restoration return it to its former glory. Today, Birkenhead Park is a Grade I listed landscape and carries the prestigious Green Heritage Award. It caters for all visitors with a number of sports such as Football, Cricket, Bowls, Angling and cycling, as well a visitors centre and access to some of the original structures around the park.

Excellent park with trees. Lawn, watching cricket cafe etc etc ... too many to mention. Cannot find better place for children and adults to cycle around. Park in New York was copied from B'head park so I need not say any more. MUST VISIT😀

Central Park in New York was based on this Park - a lovely place - well worth a visit. Accessible by public transit and you can drive and park inside.
