Stanley Park receives multi-million pound revamp

Stanley Park is looking amazing following a multi-million pound makeover.

A £3.2m project has been completed to give the park a makeover, on top of the £14m investment made between 2007 and 2009. This investment included the restoration of Isla Gladstone Conservatory.

The work that has been done is also a key part in the £260m Anfield Project regeneration scheme. It has put new life into the world-famous landmark, making it a place everybody needs to see.

Children from the nearby Four Oaks Primary School helped create the new gardens of the park, with the renovation including the historic Dahlia Walk.

The revamp includes new footpaths, improvements to already existing paths, better access, planting and replanting of trees, new and enhanced lighting, resurfacing of the car park and the repair of the sandstone entrances and gates.

In 2020, Stanley Park will celebrate its 150th birthday, but throughout this summer there has been and will be many different celebrations, for example the Summer Garden Party will be held on the coming Sunday (August 28th) and other events are also taking place fairly soon, such as Summer Fete and KidsFest.

Since January of this year, as part of its community development role, The Isla Gladstone Conservatory has employed Rachel O’Byrne as its Community and Park Animation Manager.

“I am here to animate the space – that’s what I talked about during my interview, so I kind of invented my own job title.” She said regarding her job title.

“I genuinely love my job. I come into work every day feeling really excited, and I’ve never been happier or healthier.”

“I think Stanley Park is one of Liverpool’s hidden gems. I bring friends over from south Liverpool and they say they didn’t realise how close it is and how easy it is to get to, or how beautiful it is – it’s as lovely as Sefton Park.

And we’ve got Walton Hall Park just down the road which is also beautiful.”

Rachel, who grew up in Walton and is Labour councillor for Allerton and Hunts Cross, added.

Rachael is also hoping locals who may not have visited Stanley Park for many years will come back to see what has been done.

She said: “A lot of the work that has been done has been about improving what was already here, and I think people who haven’t visited for a long time will be really pleasantly surprised.”
