Welcome to Port Sunlight River Park

The Park opened in August 2014 and will be 10 years old this year. The Park provides a unique and unrivaled view of the River Mersey towards Liverpool & also up river, across the Wirral and the hills of North Wales.

The Friends group have always provided strong support for developing, maintaining and promoting the Park.

The plans for the Ash Plant processing unit have been withdrawn. This is great news.

The Friends of Port Sunlight River Park are a voluntary group whose aim is to support Port Sunlight River Park, Wirral

We fund raise funds and stage events for the benefit of the local community. We also take part in local events to highlight the River Park.

We succesfully bid for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to create a unique resource “From Refuse to Recreation” exploring the history of the Park Site.

The large lake is over an area of an old silt pond. This means it is very flat bottomed and shallow. Unfortunately this means it often dries up in the summer. Plans to dig deeper areas face the problem that lower levels of the silt will contain the toxic materials from the time when the docks and River Mersey where very heavily polluted.

At the moment thus toxic material is safely covered by many layers of safe silt.
