THE most beautiful park to visit. ..N ew York Central Park designed on it but not as pretty as Birkenhead Park.
Well worth a walk around it and you can get seed to feed the pigeonsame from the visitors centre.

Interesting history to this park which is situated a few minutes walk from the metro station of the same name
It covers a large area so was nice walking around seeing the autumnal colours.
The information centre has maps which are useful
Beautiful park in the heart of Birkenhead, the part the Central Park in New York was based. Restored back to its former glory after an injection of lottery money several years ago.
Beautiful lakes in both upper and lower parks with paths to walk, going...More

Second option from Garston is to jump on the 86 bus into town and then get the 437 bus to West Kirby from Sir Thomas Street which goes right past the park, you can't miss it!

3 Days in Birkenhead (3 Replies)
I'm travelling by ferry from Belfast tomorrow and returning on Monday. I'm staying in an Airbnb close to Birkenhead Park. Some family members will be staying in Liverpool CC and others around Upton. Just a few questions if anyone can help: Vegan/Vegetarian options around the area? Using public transport - any saver tickets that would give me coverage around the area? Off the beaten-track things to see - I like the more unusual or often bu-passed places to visit so if anyone has any...More

Hi You could get an all-zone saveaway, which gives you unlimited off peak travel on trains, buses and the ferrys for £5.20. You can buy these at any train station, Merseytravel shop or some newsagents will sell them as a Walrus card. For the area it covers you could try the Merseytravel website

I am trying to go from Bebington station to to Birkenhead Park train station. Can I do this on one journey. I have looked at the timetable on national rail it seems to go back into Lime street and then out to Birkenhead Park station.Would there be a direct bus route.

Not a particularly difficult journey on the Merseyrail network. From Bebington you go to the underground station at Birkenhead Hamilton Square where you cross a bridge for a train to Birkenhead Park. Through ticketing, frequent trains and just one change of train. Alternatively the 410 bus from Clatterbridge to New Brighton will take you from Bebington Civic Centre to Park Station and runs every 10 minutes during the daytime but is less reliable in the evening.
