Parks & Gardens in Southport

Time to enjoy beautiful surroundings


Southport is often referred to as the floral capital of the North West and it isn't surprising when you see the beautiful landscape within and surrounding the town.


Bursting with floral splendour with a lake winding through, the Victorian Botanic Gardens in Churchtown is a burst of colour on even the gloomiest day. Open all year round, the gardens is an ideal place to escape winter or summer and with the aviary and fernery provide shelter when needed.


Less than a mile away from Lord Street is Hesketh Park. The themed gardens and ornate fountains have been beautifully reconstructed. Stunning greenery, nature trails, wildlife, a large lake and a children’s play area means you can lose track of time and spend an afternoon enjoying family time.


Lord Street Gardens provide the perfect spot for relaxation after some shopping down Lord Street.

Beautifully landscaped and with plenty of seating, the gardens offer a tranquil spot to enjoy town centre’s elegance and watch the world go by.

The wide open space along this tree lined boulevard can make you feel a million miles away.

King's Gardens, located on Marine Lake have been restored to former Southport elegance. The Venetian across the lake, iron shelters, community gardens, swan pedalos and an amazing children’s play area is the perfect place to make memories with the children, have a picnic and loose a couple of hours whilst not being too far away from the town centre.


Victoria Park, close to the town centre, it is an ideal park to escape with a picnic and relax or play a ball game with the family.

Or come and see one of the fantastic event throughout the year hosted at Victoria Park. In May take time for the Southport Food and Drink Festival - a foodie haven for the family.

Time to catch a glimpse of awaerd winning flower displays at the Southport Flower Show in August.

Watch music and magic fill the sea air. In October it is time for the British Musical Fireworks Championship.

Parks are not just green spaces, they are places to make memories. This is your time.
