Wavertree Botanic Gardens

This lovely 19th century public park has a walled botanic garden and a Grade II listed curator's lodge. Visitors can get a feel of the garden that once played a central role in the recreational and cultural life of Liverpool, before the destruction of the great glasshouses during World War 2.
