Walton Hall Park in Walton, Liverpool, England is a 130-acre (0.53 km2) park. It was opened to the public on 18 July 1934 by King George V when he visited Liverpool to open the Queensway Tunnel. The origins of the park date back to Henry de Walton, steward of the West Derby hundred in 1199.

The park contains two lakes which are very popular with fishermen. The larger lake has two islands and is inhabited by several large carps, bream and tench fishes as well as a large amount of skimmer breams, roaches and perches. The smaller lake has a path running around the perimeter making it ideal for match fishermen to set up with their seatboxes; it offers good amounts of Roach and Bream as well as several Carp and Tench.

In the summer of 2019 it was announced that Everton L.F.C. of the FA Women's Super League would play their home games at the main grandstand from the 27 September onwards.

  • Nice reasonably well kept open spaces. Not many features, but reasonably well used by mainly locals, with a large football facility as a centre piece... and lakes tucked away.
  • Its a good place to take my granddaughters to. It has lots of open grass areas to play games on, have a picnic or just enjoy the sun, when weather is nice. Also has a playground area with activities for children off all ages.
