Arrowe Country Park
Arrowe Country Park

The parkland contains a large variety of trees plants and shrubs.  Some of its more unusual trees
include Redwood, Cedar of Lebanon, Maidenhair and Indian Bean tree.  A large variety of wild life can
also be found within the parks walls.  These more rare creatures include Rooks, Magpies, Jays,
Nuthatches, Tree Creepers and Great and Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers.  Areas of grassland and
woodland edges are now being cared for as wildflower meadows which attract butterflies such as
Small Heath, Skipper and Speckled Wood at the woodland edge.  The lake and brook provide a habitat
for various species of birds, and those prepared to wait long enough may catch sight of a kingfisher as
it darts along the brook.  Ponds scattered throughout the park are breeding grounds for a variety of
pond life including frogs, newts, damsel and dragonflies.  Arrowe Country Park is situated in the centre
of the Wirral Peninsula between the rural and urban areas and is easily reached by public transport
and is the gateway to Wirral’s Countryside.  A visit to Arrowe park is well worth the visit, whether with
the kids or just for a wander down the well laid out paths.  

As well as the park way, Arrowe Country Park also contains a large 18 hole Golf Club rolling through
the 450 acres of Arrowe country park.  Measuring a little over 6000 yards from the championship tees,
the course is not overly long; however, a look at the standard scratch of 72 against a par of 71
indicates a good test awaits when you come to play.  Practise facilities include a putting green, a 200
yard practise fairway and a nine hole pitch and putt course.  In addition the park contains "The
Warrens" garden nursery.  The Council's Garden Nursery is situated at the South East corner of the
Park on Thingwall Road East.  It is open to the public every Sunday from 12noon to 4 pm and special
open days are held throughout the year.
