Chavasse Park is an open space in the city centre of Liverpool, England, United Kingdom. It was named in commemoration of the Chavasse family; Francis (2nd Bishop of Liverpool) and his twin sons Christopher Maude Chavasse (an Olympic athlete and later Bishop of Rochester), and Noel Godfrey Chavasse (an Olympic athlete, doctor, and one of only three men to win the Victoria Cross and Bar).

The park was designated in the 1980s and originally consisted of a 2–3 acre plot of unfenced grass verges, framed by city centre buildings; the Queen Elizabeth II law courts lay to the north, and Canning Place police headquarters to the south.

The west side of the park was bounded by the Dock Road, while beyond that were the historic Salthouse, and Albert Docks.

For many years the park was the home of the Yellow Submarine, built for the International Garden Festival in 1984, and now to be seen at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

The park itself was extensively altered as part of the Paradise Project redevelopment scheme. The park was excavated in Spring 2004 prior to the commencement of the Paradise Project (now known as Liverpool One). The park was reinstated atop a new 2000-space underground car park, rising in terraces to connect to the newly constructed pavilions above South John Street. It re-opened in Autumn 2008.

Chavasse Park was home to the John Lennon Peace Monument. Entitled 'Peace and Harmony' Monument, the eighteen foot high monument was dedicated to John Lennon to commemorate the 70th anniversary of his birth. The monument is now located outside of the Echo Arena.

Chavasse Park is dominated by the residential development, One Park West to the west, Liverpool One to the north, the Hilton Liverpool to the east and the Albert Dock to the south.

  • Came across this place by accident. Although not very big it is very busy. It must just be classed as a park as very small but very pleasant to walk around. It was nice to see a bit of greenery in...  more »

  • Chavasse Park is a great place to visit especially if you want to chill out and relax.Plenty going on throughout the day. Loved the grass stairs and very popular sitting area especially at lunchtime. There are plenty of places to eat and drink all at competitive prices. Albert Dock is within walking distance as is the Liver Bird Building and Mersey Ferries.Plenty of hotels in the area.My photographs don't do the area justice as it was early morning and it had been raining. Chavasse Park gets very busy especially when the sun is shining. Well worth a visit and well worth my 5* review.
  • This is a cozy chill out space in the city centre. Absolutely beautiful! The 2019 Netball world cup hosted in Liverpool docks was displayed on a big screen here and it was truly a pleasant atmosphere to watch the live event with every one.
