With its delightful walled garden, acres of rolling green meadows, and its colourful beds of seasonal blooms, Wavertree Botanic Park continues the city’s botanic love affair – which took root here in the park’s huge glasshouse (now, sadly, no longer a feature).
A handsome example of a mid 19th century public park, Wavertree was founded by historian, poet, politician and gardener, William Roscoe as Liverpool Botanic Garden; with specimens brought to the city from the four corners of the globe.
Check out the Grade II listed perfectly proportioned Curator’s Lodge at Wavertree Botanic Park. Beats a gardener’s shed anyday!
