Wavertree Botanic Gardens

Wavertree Botanic Gardens (formerly Wavertree Botanic Garden and Park) is an example of a mid 19th century public park. It incorporates an earlier walled botanic garden, founded by William Roscoe as Liverpool Botanic Garden and relocated from land near Mount Pleasant in the 1830s.The gardens include the Grade II curator's lodge built between 1836-1837. On 22 August 2013 the botanic park and gardens were listed by English Heritage at Grade II in the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. The Botanic Lodge Wavertree is now a nursery!

    In the early 50's I used to work in Edge Lane - and a group of us used to go to Botanic Gardens to sit and have our lunch
