This pretty park in Crosby sits by the side of the Leeds Liverpool Canal and includes the delightful Brookvale Local Nature Reserve.
The park is made up of wetland and dryer grassy areas with an abundance of birdlife including Snipe, Water Rail, Woodcock, Dunnock, Common Whitethroat and Blackcap. It's an ideal place for a peaceful, waterside walk.
To continue your walking pick up the Leeds and Liverpool Canal or head to the coast on our Crosby Beach Walk. Here you can visit the famous 'Another Place' sculptures by Antony Gormley.

Rimrose Valley. The Leeds-Liverpool canal running through Rimrose Valley which splits the communities of Crosby and Litherland. Now a local nature reserve, the site is bounded by the Leeds Liverpool canal to the east and the Rimrose Brook to the west. Reclamation started in 1993 with the aim of improving the area as both a recreational and educational resource for local people.

Rimrose Valley Nature Reserve, Litherland, Merseyside. View of pathway, looking west. This nature reserve is run and managed by the Sefton Ranger Service. As Sefton's only non-coastal reserve the valley provides a valuable and unique green oasis amongst what is otherwise a heavily populated and industrialised area. With its interesting network of pathways and raised boardwalks, Brookvale and Rimrose Valley as a whole provides opportunities for quiet informal countryside recreation in an area where such activities are scarce.
