About Bowring Park

In 1906, Alderman WB Bowring gifted the Roby Hall estate “to the inhabitants of Liverpool” to become one of the first municipal parks in the UK. In 1913 the first Municipal Golf Course in the UK was established at Bowring Park.  Today, historic Bowring Park and Golf Course stands as an important local park and key sporting facility serving the community of Huyton-with-Roby and surrounding areas.  Located on Junction 5 of the M62, the park is a significant gateway into the Borough of Knowsley.

Roughly covering an area of six football pitches, Bowring Park features:

  • Open parkland
  • Play area
  • Community and Visitor Centre
  • Historic Gardens: the former gardens of the Roby Hall estate
  • Bowring Park Golf Course: an 18 hole Golf Course lying south of the Park itself
  • Parkland Landscapes/Vistas: including a rich stock of veteran trees showcasing the original landscape layout of the estate
