Nature Reserve

Sense of Space

Wirral Country Park is a place of contrasts. Badgers and Foxes hunt the quieter parts, birds nest in the dense hedges or feed on the berries in winter, and you may see up to 10 kinds of butterfly in summer. Head for the 60 feet high, boulder-clay cliffs and look out over the Dee Estuary and you'll smell the tang of mud and salt, feel the sea breeze and get a sense of space quite unlike the enclosed, inland Wirral Way.

For over 70 years, from the height of the Victorian era onwards, a busy railway linked Hooton, on the main Chester-to-Birkenhead line, to West Kirby, 12 miles away at Wirral's tip. But in 1962 the line was closed. For a while the track lay derelict. But in 1973, backed by money from the Countryside Commission, and after a great deal of work, the old railway line was opened as Wirral Country Park. It was the first Country Park in Britain. Today it is must for a family day out and its facilities include Picnic Areas, Visitor Centre, Shop, Information staff, Café, BBQ area, Bird Hide and much more!

NO CARAVANS OR CAMPING.

Opening Times

Open (01/01/2014 - 31/12/2014)

* The Dee Estuary: A Special Place

Wirral Country Park Visitor Centre at Thurstaston is open all year round and contains an information and sales desk where you can find out what's on, pick up leaflets and books of special interest, purchase bird care products, or simply talk to the Rangers or Information Staff. You can buy refreshments at the adjacent snack bar, use the toilets or visit the bird hide and small exhibition area. Outside again, relax, play, picnic, horse ride or go for a stroll. Keep your eyes peeled and there's always something to see, whatever the season.
