    Default Princes Park

    When was the last time any cash was spent on this grand old park?

    1979 I think was when the Prinnie Park Assoc installed a short-lived fountain on the lake.

    Then there's the rejigged play area (which like all of the re-jigged play areas looks fairly nasty and now clashes with the rest of the park).

    Other than that, nothing?

    Anyone remember the original main avenue of trees which mostly disappeared in the late 70's? Was it the storm or was it Dutch Elm?

    Best view in Prinnie? The sight of Mossley Hill Chuch in the distance rising from a seemingly forested hill. Magical.

    I'm not too familiar with this park for some reason. I've been in it only once or maybe twice.Don't know why I've always bypassed it - as I've spent loads of times around that area and been in Sefton park hundreds of times.

    You may not know this but Princes Park once had a set of tunnels!

    They're now gone - thanks to the council but I did have a good nose in the one that was left!

    I went down to have a look a few years back, but I was too late - they'd just started excavating for that new housing development.

    spent my childhood playin around that tunnel without ever knowing it
    was part of a networkof tunnels. Always believed it was some sort of air-raid shelter....

    The overgrown unofficial corner of the park always held the deepest fascination for us.

    Quite startling how steep that mini-valley is there. Shaped by the path of an ancient watercourse?
