Mab Lane Community Woodland is the green link between Liverpool and Knowsley. Featuring wildflower meadows, orchards, artworks and spaces for sport, recreation and relaxation, it was created to celebrate Liverpool's 2008 European Capital of Culture year.
Calderstones Park includes woodland, lake, fields and ornamental gardens including a Japanese Garden. Pay your respects to the Allerton Oak – estimated at an astonishing 1,000 years old!
Croxteth Country Park features magnificent woodland, grazing livestock and traditional cottages. The Park is an excellent place to see wildlife - the birdsong and wild flowers will soon make you forget you are only six miles from the City Centre.
Defra Minister Therese Coffey recently visited Mersey Forest projects in Liverpool. Children have been taking part in Forest School, such as those at St Vincent de Paul Catholic Primary and Garston Primary. Nature4Health sessions are also regularly taking place in the city.
In Liverpool, The Mersey Forest works with a number of Friends of the woodland groups who are always keen to welcome new faces to help care for local woodlands:
Woolton: Friends of Woolton Woods
Speke: Friends of Mill Wood and Alder Wood
