    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.

    Advertisements -------

    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
