Celebrate Love Parks Week this weekend at one of Wirral’s beautiful parks

03 August 2023
Love Parks Week

What better way to mark #LoveParksWeek this weekend than to put your wellies/raincoat/sun hat on (depending on the British summertime weather) and visit one of the wonderful green spaces we have in Wirral?

A sign of the beauty of our borough, as well as the hard work of our Rangers and volunteers, is that Wirral has an impressive 33 sites recognised with Green Flag Awards.

These include 29 of Wirral’s parks, while Wirral Country Park celebrates it’s 50th anniversary by joining Birkenhead Park in receiving a prestigous Green Heritage Flag,

In addition, Wirral’s New Ferry Butterfly Park, managed by Cheshire Wildlife Trust, and Woodchurch Holy Cross, managed by Holy Cross Woodchurch PCC, have been awarded the Green Flag Community Award, bringing the total awards in Wirral to 33.

Cllr Liz Grey, Chair of the Environment, Climate Emergency and Transport Committee, said:

Awards, particularly ones as prestigious as these, really celebrate the continual work and effort put in by those who look after these recognised sites. It is the work of our Friends groups, volunteers and council staff that make awards like this possible but that also help to keep our parks and green spaces a wonderful and welcoming place for residents and all those that want to visit them.
