Port Sunlight River Park

Recently opened Port Sunlight River Park is well worth a trip.

Last week we visited for the first time and saw flocks of goldfinches, black tailed godwits and walked through a swarm of dragonflies. Add to that fantastic views along the Mersey and over to Liverpool, plus sightings of waders on the mud flats at New Ferry, and you have a very memorable and enjoyable outing.

More information can be found on the River Park's website: www.portsunlightriverpark.com
