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.
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.
Nature4Health activities have been taking place in Knowsley, including dementia walks.
In Knowsley, The Mersey Forest works with a Friends of the woodland group who are always keen to welcome new faces to help care for local woodlands:
Stockbridge Village: Littlewoods of Stockbridge Association.

A great way to help us prove that people value their local woodlands is to add your name to our list of supporters. You can also receive news, events and goodies with our optional e-newsletter..
