Overview

The Black Pearl is an interactive artwork to be enjoyed by all age groups it has been created and maintained by a small group of pasionate pirates. Allow your imagination to soar or just absorb the work and detail in the carefully selected driftwood and ships ropes. There are many sculptures and carvings to be found on and around the ship . If your lucky you may even find treasure in her treasure chest. The golden sands surrounding The Pearl are cleaned every day and perfect for the children to play on. The area of Cosy Cove is loved and treasured by the local community who always keep a close eye on her. pirates At Art

It was really very inventive, the children there were having a ball they seemed to be on a school outing.

Depending on your point of view. You with love it or loathe it. Always kids playing on it, made from drift wood, easily accessible from New Brighton. Bench to sit and view of climb aboard for closer inspection.

Brilliant ideal for the up & coming pirates. Built by the New Brighton Community Arts group using drift wood from the beach

Last visited New Brighton when I was very young. Not disappointed, still like visiting an old fashioned sea side town but with modern facilities. Would recommend.

This is an imaginative construction from driftwood and "borrowed" items put together by a wonderful group of would-be pirates from the Wallasey and New Brighton area. It is a setting for imaginative play of all sorts to do with the sea, helped by the sheltered...More

It's approx. 2 miles from Seacombe Ferry to the black pearl which is literally a few meters from Vale Park. ;)
