    Default Stanley Park

    Had a walk around the newly refurbished Stanley park, and was amazed by the work that's been done! The conservatory looks fantastic,as well as the terrace,and various smaller structures! I used to play here,as a kid,and have fond memories of the paddling pool,the floral (cuckoo?) clock,and of course,the rowing boats,all of which,unfortunately,no longer exist!But,no matter, I just hope now,that there is some effort now,by the council,to keep it in it's present condition! ( I did take more pic's,but it was quite overcast,and they came out a bit dark!)
    Steve.

    To think Liverpool FC are being allowed to build a stadium on the park, when Walton Hall Park is a far better site and a disused Merseyrail line is there waiting to serve the stadium and the surrounding districts.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Nice photos Steve. Boy, that's changed since I was last there. Think it will stay like that.

    It's looking great!!! I'm in the South end so Sefton Park is my usual park but I do wish that the whole of Liverpool could have had a vote with regard to the application to build a stadium.

    Still, great snaps makes me want to go there this weekend, may do that!
