Coronavirus update - angling permits
We will not be processing angling permits until further notice. Once government regulations allow it, we will process any applications that have been submitted using the online form below.
Before using any park lakes in Liverpool, you must obtain a permit from the council. This is to help promote good angling and conserve the quality of the lakes.
Once registered, it allows us to contact anglers about any issues affecting the lakes, as well as giving us a better idea as to how our parks are used.
