Sefton Park is a serene public park where you can stroll, jog, or bike along the pathways while enjoying the surrounding plant life. Spacious areas are available for sports, or you can boat on the lake. Search for the Peter Pan statue, Old Nick’s Caves, the aviary viewing point, or Bandstand, which is said to have been the inspiration for The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band. For drinks and snacks, head to one of the cafes. The park is easily reached by car, as there are several parking lots available, or the train stop is just a short walk from the site.

  • A lovely park to visit, with lots of space for walks and is totally gorgeous on a summer's day. There is some parking nearby which feels limited in summer but it is easily accessible. It's a great place to visit, and there are plenty of events taking place each summer to visit.
  • Lovely park great facilities for children however toilets at both the lakeside cafe and the ice cream parlour need a bit of attention. Beautiful, large, green space generally well kept and pretty clean. Plenty of bins just wish people would use them! 😡 Love the place though 😊
