When we booked up to see exhibits from the Chinese Terracotta Army at Liverpool's World Museum, I decided that I would like to re-visit Calderstones Park, a place we used to visit as students. The park is about half a mile from where we were students at Liverpool Hope. It is hard to think that this lovely peaceful place is in a city.
Calderstones Park is in South Liverpool and covers 126 acres of land. It is a large family park, beautifully maintained with lots to do. There is a children's play area, a café, an old mansion, a lake and green spaces. Best of all Calderstones Park is home to the ancient Allerton Oak and also the Calder Stones, Neolithic (new Stone Age) stones found nearby.
Calderstones Park is having a Heritage event in autumn 2018 and so it will be well worth a visit.
