Public toilets and new Visitor Centre within Birkenhead Park. Shops nearby.

OTHER DETAILS

The park has been used for roller ski races. The Park has recently been extensively refurbished. The rough section of road by the triumphal main gate has been resurfaced. Unfortunately internal tracks have been resurfaced with gravel, although this has now consolidated a bit. (Only a local authority short of money would spend it on resurfacing tracks that did not need resurfacing with an inferior material).
