Parks photos on show at the Cathedral

An exhibition showing stunning images of Liverpool’s parks and green spaces is going on display at Liverpool Cathedral.

The photographs were entrants in the 4th annual People’s Parks competition, staged by the Liverpool Parks Friends Forum in partnership with the City Council.

This year the popular competition was sponsored by The Reader Organisation, the Liverpool-based charity who make it possible for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to enjoy and actively engage with literature.

There were three categories, in the competition

• Parks for All Seasons
• Parks and People
• Young People’s competition (entries under age-16)

Hundreds of entries were received showing the best of Liverpool’s 70-plus parks, gardens, recreation grounds, playgrounds and nature reserves and a selection of the best will feature in the free exhibition from 8-19 February (9am to 5.30pm each day)

“This city has some of the best parks in the country and some very talented photographers. Put the two together and you have a winning combination so I hope that as many people as possible take the opportunity to visit this exhibition,”  said Councillor Peter Mitchell, Mayoral Lead on Parks and Open Spaces.
