Parks and Gardens: Suburbs (East Liverpool)
Wavertree Botanic Gardens
Edge Lane, Liverpool. L7 9PL • (0151) 233 3000
This sadly neglected 19th century public park has a walled botanic garden and a Grade II listed curator's lodge. Visitors can get a feel of the garden that once played a central role in the recreational and cultural life of Liverpool, before the destruction of the great glasshouses during World War II.
You can explore the once magnificent Walled Garden, Curator's Lodge, imagine what the ornamental carpet bedding was like or let the children run free in the play area (swings, multi-play, junior multi-play, roundabout, spring mobile). You can also see the site of the great glasshouses and ancillary buildings, ornamental fountain, summerhouse, fishpond and aviary. It is also the current site of the Tam O'Shanter and Souter Johnny statues.
