One of Liverpool's most popular outdoor spots is Sefton Park.
The 235 acre park is a great place to go for stroll, enjoy a picnic or even to feed the ducks.
The difficult bit is deciding where to explore first, will it be the boating lake, the bandstand, the children’s play area or the Palm House?
You can feed your feathered friends on the lake - but you will need an angling permit for a spot of fishing.
The kids can 'perform' on the bright red bandstand thought to be the inspiration behind The Beatles' song Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
And if they've still go lots of energy to burn the playground features swings, slides, climbing frames, roundabout and multi play area.
The beautiful glass Palm House is absolutely stunning and open nearly all year round with free admission to visitors, and is often used by theatre groups to put on family friendly shows and events.
You should also visit the Aviary viewing point, Fairy Glen - a series of pretty cascading waterfalls to the east of the park, or explore the hidden Old Nick’s Caves - built in 1870 by a French rockwork specialist who helped the designers of the park create the landscape.
Monuments also worth looking out for on your visit to the park include the Eros Fountain by the Oasis Cafe and the Peter Pan statue by the Palm House.Visitors can buy hot and cold drinks and food at Oasis Cafe and there’s also a smaller glass-fronted Boat House Kiosk by the lake, which serves a selection of coffees, ice creams and other small snacks.
Of course if you want to bring your own food, there’s a picnic area in front of the Palm House with several benches, and plenty of pretty areas to throw down a blanket and eat alfresco.
