Been coming for years great to take the kids. Lovely flowers and lots of wildlife to enjoy. Parking is a bit of a pain but we would still come back.

Enjoyed a nice picnic here for lunch during the hot weather. Not too busy and lots of nice wildlife to watch. A good place to go to get away from the more touristy areas of Southport.

You can just go for a stroll in this lovely park, or you can tie it in with a visit to the Hesketh Arms!

I moved to Southport in 2000. Back then I used to love the Botanic garden. You could go on a boat trip, eat a nice ice cream and relax on a bench. Now the lake it so dirty that it stinks, no boats for years,...More
