Central Park is the largest area of parkland in Wallasey and second largest urban park in Wirral. It is a fantastic place to visit - well used and much loved by local residents. Established in 1835, it pre-dates Birkenhead Park (1847) and Sefton Park in Liverpool (1870s).
Today the park really is a hub for the local community, so much so, it has been dubbed 'everyone's park' because it offers such a good welcome, and such a wide range of leisure and sporting opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Facilities on offer include Angling, bowling, gardening, tennis, cricket, basketball, multi-use games area, cycle way, a fitness trail and up to date play equipment.
The Wallasey Central Park Partnership are a keen and vibrant group who have had some considerable success in fund raising to implement improvements. Along the way the group provides events and volunteering opportunities for the people of Wallasey, not forgetting their community not-for-profit facility 'everyone's cafe'.
Alongside all this activity, the park also offers a green and healthy environment within the urban area of Wallasey, with mature trees, ponds, a lake, playing fields, allotments, a walled garden, and plenty of open grassland. 2016 is Central Park 125 anniversary and plans a series of events throughout the year.
