Otterspool promenade, and in particular the new playground was a big hit with our two children during our recent trip to Liverpool. Views of the Mersey from the promenade are picture perfect, giving you a great sense of the land and character of this place. Although we didn’t have bicycles with us we might just hire them next time to make the best use of this green space. The playground occupied my three and five year old children despite the rain and wind dampening us all. We would have stayed longer and picnicked but I reckon our sarnies would have been soaked within minutes. My son especially liked the spider’s web climbing frame. We didn’t see any kites flown on our visit yet I’m told that this is the place to fly them on Merseyside, often providing a spectacle in the sky at the weekend. Opposite the playground is Otters Pool café that has toilets you can use. Parking in on the road or you can get the bus of train to Aigburth to enjoy this park and playground.
