Did you know that Knowsley has the highest woodland cover of all the local authorities within The Mersey Forest?

We're working to make the most of this natural resource and strengthen the connections between Knowsley's green assets for both people and wildlife. Street tree planting in the area is making the urban areas more attractive and resilient to climate change.


Where can I visit?

Acornfield Plantation is one of the few remaining woods of the original Manor of Kirkby – it can be seen on a map dating from 1769. It was originally planted for timber production but now is a place for nature and relaxation.


Stadt Moers Park was once the site of coal mines and a brickworks, then a landfill site for Knowsley's rubbish. Thanks to an ambitious project spanning decades, it's now 220 acre of meadow, woodland and pond habitats split into four distinct zones for you to discover.


Northwood Forest Hills is Knowsley's newest significant green space. It's a mosaic of woodland, grasslands, wildflower meadows and a long stretch of water on what once was neglected old railway sidings and unwelcoming derelict land.
