Birkenhead Park

Went to Birkenhead Park yesterday. I was born in Birkenhead, and have been there zillions of times, but never, until yesterday, been to the Park. It is brilliant. Not formal or highly planted like Grosvenor Park, Chester, but brilliant. It was, of course, the model for Central Park in New York.
It was very busy, fully kitted out teams of children playing football with all the parents cheering them on in one part of the Park, yet just the other side of the trees, it was quiet and peaceful around the lake, where there were people (of all ages) fishing, walking their dogs, or just wandering, like us.
I took about 70 pictures (some duff ones), and here are a few of them.
