This lovely park in Liverpool covers nearly 100 acres. There's nice footpaths taking you to woodland, lakes and a beautiful botanical gardens. Here you will find 4000 species of plants with vibrant colours in the summer months. The park is named after a number of ancient megaliths that are said to be older than Stonehenge. Other highlights include a pretty stream with a little bridge, a 1000 year old tree, a peaceful Japanese garden and a nice cafe.
The Trans Pennine Trail runs past the northern edge of the park. You can pick this up to continue your walking in the area. Heading west will soon bring you to the expansive Sefton Park. Here you can also pick up the circular Liverpool City Walk which takes you to some of the highlights of the city.
Following the trail north east will bring you to the pretty Childwall Woods and then on to the Liverpool Loop Line cycling and walking trail.
