We would like to access some funding to help restore/replace some of the pathways in the park particularly on the Croxteth Hall parkrun route.

Liverpool Delivery stage

funded icon
This project was funded on 30 Oct 2020!

We are currently in the process of securing final permission for this project from Liverpool City Council's Parks and Greenspaces team. We are extremely confident that our permission will be granted before the end of this campaign. No funds will be transferred to the project delivery manager until permission has been granted. We want to restore/replace some of the existing pathways in the park. There is one area in particular we are thinking of which is the area subject to flooding. This stretch has some exposed tree roots which can be hazardous to walkers/runners and especially those with buggies and wheelchairs, and there’s a fair bit of erosion along this stretch which means the path needs building up and also raising to allow adequate drainage into the River Alt. We want to enhance the physical natural environment to improve public access this forms part of an area that is close to the River Alt and at risk of flooding.

What we'll deliver:

  • We will provide better pathways for people to use especially those with prams and wheelchairs
  • We will remove the problem of flooding on this stretch of the park

Why it's a great idea:

This project will benefit all park users who use the pathways, at the moment lots of pathways both within the inner and outer perimeters of the park, this project will increase accessibility for all people.

Steps to get it done:

  • Funding Agreed
  • Clearance work begins by CPVG
  • Pathways base laid
  • Top layers of pathway in place
  • Project completion
