    The original model of Everton Park published in the Echo had a large lake on it for sailboats and I think it ran down to Gt Homer St.
    I bet the guy was sacked coming up with that idea,down hill all the way,hey how do we sail up hill?

    It did indeed Joe. In fact had there not been protests from residents in Langraove Street, Netherfield Road was not now exist. The idea was for the park to run from Heyworth Street down to Great Homer Street. Here's another pic of how it was meant for artists to perform to those seated in curves like in an ampitheatre.

    Still say it was a waste of valuable land space for housing,at the end of the day thats all it is....empty space and nobody uses it except the girls of the night,and no Ged I don't visit the area.

    That park never really took off. Don't know why, but it has no atmosphere. It does feel like an empty space, and yet the area has reverted to it's original state which was hills and fields.
    A few people do use the park - mainly one or two dog walkers and people who park up their cars to look at the view. That's about it.
    I think there is the occasional event that goes on there - but the place just doesn't have a feel to it - not like Sefton or Calderstones has.
    It still has the feel of just being a divider between Heyworth, Netherfield and Gt Homer st.

    The fact that is hilly puts a lot of people off,they want to stroll in the park not puff and pant up hills. Seems to be used by joggers when I have visited.

    I should say that any green space in an urban area is a plus.
