“A Good Walking Track”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This is a good place for a walk along the former railway track and the visitor centre has a number of leaflets and maps of the park and some nearby areas. There are some open areas too which gives somewhere to relax and plenty of space for children to play and others to have peace and quiet.

The views across the River Dee are spectacular.

“Wirral Country Park”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This has a visitors' centre situated at the bottom of Station Road in Thurstaston. There is ample car parking and public toilets. There is a large grassy area with ponds. Parents with young children should be aware of the steep mud cliffs. There are warning signs as these cliffs can give way. There is access at the bottom of Station Road via proper steps down onto the beach. The country park is also connected to the Wirral Way which is a long distance footpath and is also used by horse riders, dog walkers and cyclists. A great day out for everybody especially if the weather is kind.

“Great view of the River Dee looking over to Wales”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

You could lose yourself in the woody area or just walk along the pathways. It's quite hilly and can be muddy so bring the right footwear for your visit. This area we went to was Thurstaston but there are various area also part of the Wirral Country Park, also very picturesque and all very close by. One gives a walk from Thurstaston to West Kirby or you can go the other way. There is a pebbly and sandy beach near there and if you go as far as West Kirby, the beach there is very good. Also only 15 miles from Chester and 8 Miles from Liverpool.

“A favourite day out and it's totally free !!!!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This place is amazing for any age group. If you want to go walking then you can go for miles on the disused railway tack, you can cycle, take the dog out, go horse riding, run for miles. Take a walk along the beach. Take a picnic. Make sure you visit the visitor centre and the bird watching hut is great for seeing all kinds of colourful birds. This is a top top place to spend a full day or just a couple of hours. If you fancy a BBQ you can book the grills by calling the Council.

“England's forgotten peninsula”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Just why we had never been to The Wirral for a break escapes us.....but we will be going back. So much to do, so much to see, so many restaurants and superb for walking, cycling and sailing.
We stayed at The Caravan Club site at west Wirral Country Park which lies between Heswall and Wast Kirby, adjacent to the West Wirral Way, a 12 mile cycle and footpath. The main impact comes from the mighty Dee estuary with its backdrop of Welsh Mountains and the countryside of Flintshire. You are never far from the massive sandy beaches and the scenery changes dramatically with every tide. Hoylake's Marine Lake giving a permanent sailing venue is a major surprise. And then just a car ride away is Birkenhead and New Brighton, fast re-inventing itself after years of decline. Don't take my word for it.....just go there!
