Sefton Park

Sefton Park covers an area of less than 1 km2. There is a magnificent palm house from the end of the 19th century. Around it there are statues of such celebrities as Christopher Columbus, Captain James Cook and Charles Darwin. In addition, there is a bronze and aluminum fountain called the Shaftesbury Memorial and Eros Fountain. You can also see, among others a gothic spring with drinking water, an obelisk in memory of Samuel Smith and a vast playground for children, maintained in a pirate atmosphere.

Until the 1990s, there was also an aviary in the park with several dozen species of exotic birds. There was a small amphitheater here, but it was removed in the 1970s. The park also hosted Moscow State Circus shows and concerts of the Royal Philharmonic in Liverpool.

The park was opened in 1872 by Prince Arthur, who then dedicated it to the health and entertainment of the city's inhabitants. It was built to a design by Lewis Hornblower.
