    Smile Telegraph travel article - and Sefton park Q.

    This posted article seems pretty reasonable as a very brief view of Liverpool and area.
    They missed a lot out...... but it does start off with a really nice picture of Southport Pier.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/de...-the-city.html

    It mentions Sefton Park, and my mother said she went there yesterday for a coffee at the new cafe - on the lake where the boat house used to be. She also said the lake area had been cleaned up.

    Anyone have any pics of the new work?

    The new cafe at the boat house end...the new aviary area... a couple of the fountains in the lake.

    I'd like to see them put the railings back.

    I wonder whether that would be a good idea or not these days?

    That mono-rail track does not have much of a terminus Dave.

    I don't remember railings in the 60's - we could go right to the waters edge to launch our little wooden yachts, hoping they would make it to the other side if the sails were set right - no radio control back then...

    If the yachts got becalmed, there was always someone in a row boat that would retrieve them.

    When did the boats disappear - and were they done in by Health and Safety?

    Hi az - they were removed as part of the war effort.
