About

Visited by thousands, the gardens are an important cultural asset for the people of the region, and have become much-loved tourist attractions in their own right.

The heritage and history trail starts at Rotten Row by Victoria Park, it takes you around King's Gardens, one of the biggest parks in Southport, Hesketh Park and Botanic Gardens, the beautiful park in Churchtown.
