Storm Doris


On 23rd February this year, the UK experienced a “weather bomb” in the form of Storm Doris. Many areas of Wirral were damaged as a result, and the Park was not an exception. Sadly, Birkenhead Park lost 8 trees during the inclement weather, and the main vehicle gates had to remain closed throughout to ensure public safety. Thankfully, our quick reacting heritage gardening team were on hand to ensure safe removal of each of these trees and have begun a scheme to replace them with new features including some upcoming wildflower beds to add a bit of colour!
