The park is home to the 'Palm House' which opened in 1896. The palm house houses hundreds of rare types of plants and trees.
During the Liverpool Blitz in 1941, a bomb fell nearby shattering all of the glass in the structure and it had to be reglazed.
The park also contains a boating lake which was used up until the 1970s but is now mostly used for fishing.
In the grounds of the Palm House there is a statue of peter pan, made by sculptor George Frampton. There are seven of these statues around the world, the others being in London England, Brussels Belgium, Camden New Jersey United Sates of America, Perth Western Australia, Toronta Canada, and St. Johns Newfoundland Canada.
The park is often used as a Live Music Venue by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and is sometimes used by the Moscow State Circus.
The park is a beautiful place and definately worth a visit if you are in the Liverpool area. It is especially beautiful throughout the autumn months and during spring when there are thousands of daffodils in the fields.
