The cafe has been completely renovated and is a huge leap in quality of fresh home made food from what was previously there (which included a grumpy rude owner that my children remember!). Coffee is great and you can eat indoors or there's outdoor seating plus take away. Home made sausage rolls and pasties are lovely. It's open from 8am... More

This is a great park with many great features but why are dogs allowed off their leads.There is an area which I am told is a dog free zone but surely this should be the area where dogs could be let off their leads leaving the rest off the park for the public to enjoy without having dogs running wild.

As my local park I think that sometimes I take it for granted. A lovely green space that with a little effort you can lose yourself in. The walled gardens early on a Sunday morning with the newspaper are very relaxing. Great to see that The Reader have now opened up a café there now after previous owners closed it.

The name of this park relates to pre-historic standing stones that are OLDER than the stones at stonehenge. They are located near the centre of the park and are a hidden gem in the city of Liverpool. Not only this but the park also contains a 1000 year old oak tree that druids used to use as a court. This... More

Whilst this is a lovely park & I have visited here for years, I am disappointed by the apparatus. Surely the play area could do with a spruce up. Whilst the addition of the wooden apparatus is welcomed for older children, there isn't much for the 2-4 year bracket. The new café looked promising but we may have caught staff... More

I visited Calderstones Park with my grandchildren for the play area. We also enjoyed the walled garden and the Japanese Garden which are well worth a look. The suprising highlight of the visit is the new Reader Cafe. This has replaced the old cafe which served everything you could want as long as it was with chips and mugs of... More

What a lovely cafe. Great atmosphere. Excellent staff. Lovely menu. We came for an early morning walk and had our breakfast. The bacon was perfect. Very reasonable price.
