    Default Stanley Park

    It is not right that LFC should be allowed to tear up a listed Victorian park in a rundown area in order to build a new stadium.


    ADVERTISING




    This park has been neglected for years, the palm house, lake and gardens look tatty.

    How can you call this regeneration/ If Liverpool want a new stadium there are plenty of other places for it.

    Quite right but the plans for Anfield include the full restoration of the park, back to its former glory.

    Concreting over half of the park is a strange way of restoring it.

    I'm not sure if I can see why they've cut so many trees down. Especially the ones in the palm house site.

    Could it be because they're too old?
    Liverpool's parks are between 100 - 150 years old.

    They have done exactly the same in Sefton Park.

    My Pa told me that they've made a right mess of the place...

    When does a tree become too old?

    Never, a typical tree (sycamore, oak, beech etc) can live for up to 1000 years. I suppose their reasoning for the felling is unsafe trees and the long term look of the park.
    I still think they have cut down too many. Mature trees give parks their character, simply planting new ones doesn't have the same effect.
    A real shame

    Gregs Dad. posted a picture of a huge building.."The Conservation Bldging.." there in Liverpool...

    It would seem to me, that this would be a great place to go to tell the councils about concerns in the Parks, etc...

    Not sure how this works there, but, maybe if you all have a "Meetup" this would be a great place to stop and put in a few names as petitioning what your wishes are..????

    It is sad to learn they make a mess out of Sefton Park, and then don't redo it as quickly as they demolish things? Just not right.. I heard local citizens went out and helped too in relocating the critters, (in concern for conservation)?

    Maybe when the weather clears up a bit.. Spring and new seedlings, etc.. will thrive? As for trees being too old.. Well, sometimes its due to rot from pests. People again.. have nothing better to do , but complain about a tree that has a bruise etc. in it... If trees could talk..just imagine what they could tell us about survival Hope the Conservation Society comes to the rescue to perserve your trees and loveliness that makes it worth a day out there... aloha

    The palm house at Stanley park has been taken down and sent away to be refurbished, and should be back in a year or two in all its glory

    I think the palm house would need to be dismantled first to repair and clean the cast iron work. Would'nt it be a good idea to site it somewhere in the City Centre or Pierhead so that everyone could enjoy Liverpool's botanic collection.

    Cheers samp.

    A SELECTION of glass bottles thought to date back to the 1890s, some embossed with an image of Stephenson’s Rocket, have been found as builders dismantle the Gladstone Pavilion, in Stanley Park. Read

    Well, Humboldt Park is the center of Chicago Puerto Rican community. It's a neighborhood in a little bit of transition. Lots of low income residents and families sharing space with young urban professionls who are gentrifying the area. On warm summer or fall days, you might see young "yuppie" couples (for lack of a better word) jogging past the the guys hanging out in the park blasting tunes from their cars. It's a colorful area, lots of Puerto Rican clothing stores and record shops and great small restaurants.

    I spent alot of my childhood in Stanley Park, Watching my Uncle Jack playing bowls, fascinated by the flower clock, enjoying endless summer days at the swings, and paddling pool, bike rides around the perimeters.
