in response to Mr Chadderton and after my walk through the park today, I agree but ..
The huge dedication by those people who volunteer to care for this Edwardian park is seen in abundance as you walk through. They manage this volunteering via a 'friends of ' scheme as wirral council have relinquished ability. Park stats say that 60 plus % of visitors are from outside of west kirby, welcome ! and that they come for the excellent playground and to feed ducks on the lake. These volunteers have maintained the park to high standards despite the lack of money available to them. The current (2017) leader of the council lives next to the park as do I, he walks his dog through the park, he must see the hoards of people feeding the ducks, geese, moor hens mostly with white bread (despite the too polite notices, that white (in particular) bread is harmful to birds). The council should and could provide 'top up' money to all 'friends of' parks that have lakes, to dredge a lake is prohibitively expensive and to shoot the uneducated (assumed, due to polite but visible notices) people who feed white bread to the birds at the same time as polluting the lake, is against the law. The lake for the sake of the wildlife should be dredged as regularly as it needs as opposed to when it can be afforded. Congratulations on an excellent job 'friends of'

What's not to like about this beautiful park?? An oasis of tranquility and beauty, plus a space to play and have fun, all just a 5 minute walk from the centre of West Kirby.

4 not 5 stars; only as I know the people who run and maintain it are having to do much more with much less and yet strive to make it better and more beautiful than ever; that, and I don't want too many people coming. ;)

Like anywhere it has its share of mindlessness from time to time, but if people of all ages can treasure and respect this precious place, we'll all be the richer. :)xP

I have lived in this area for a number of years and I often visit Ashton Park. It's a nice place just to walk around and relax. The park is split into 2 sections with the Wirral Way running between the upper and lower sections. There are plenty of benches to sit on and just watch the world go by. Some musical events and fairs are hosted during the summertime and a small tea and coffee kiosk is operated by volunteers. The park has 2 bowling greens and toilet facilities are available.

It's a nice park with free tennis courts, football field and children's play area. There is a small lake in the middle and nice walks in and around. Worth a visit or many if you so fancy.

This is a dangerous park. I once walked through here and nearly got shot by Mexicans who were drinking tequila and shooting the glasses. There were also some skinheads dealing drugs. Beware. SAD!

It was a very sunny day. We went to visit a Viking encampment which was very good. Generally a well kept park (by local volunteers) including bowling green, cafe and a children's playground.

Very pleasant experience for a first visit did not go round the whole park, stayed around the pond/lake. Will visit again during the day not evening and hopefully give a full compliment of stars

I often walk my dog here. There is easy parking on the road nearby, and it's a good point to join the Wirral Way, or to walk down to the Marine Lake. The park lake is lovely.

Lovely park in the day , too many seagulls though near the lake, the playground is great for the kids as well.

Nice place to relax but a lack of funding has resulted in the place becoming rundown over the last few years.
