Running inland from the North Shore of the River Mersey lie private parks – Regency, Victorian and Edwardian houses within a setting of forest trees, isolated from the rows of by-law properties by their own park gates – Grassendale and Cressington are two of these parks which extend into gracious boulevards and ‘well-treed’ areas of suburban South Liverpool.
