Port Sunlight River Park has been transformed from a closed landfill site to a 28-hectare park providing a popular community space with an array of walkways, wildlife, wildflowers and wetlands area. It’s a place for both the public and the people we support to enjoy the great outdoors.
Autism Together manages the park on behalf of The Land Trust, to provide a community site that makes a positive difference for local people and visitors, promoting healthy lifestyles in the process.
The park, which opened in 2014, provides visitors with a scenic waterfront and a variety of walks, offering stunning views across Merseyside to Liverpool’s iconic waterfront. A section of wetland to the north of the site, along with River Mersey mud flats is already an important site for large populations of water birds and is a site of special protection. In 2019 a riverside Visitor’s Centre and Café was opened.
Onsite for Autism Together is Park Ranger Andrew Jennings-Giles and Community Education Officer Ian Jones.
