Popular park pedaloes power back

Pedaloes are returning to Sefton Park in time for the school summer holidays.

A fleet of six pedaloes will be available for hire at the Park’s lake throughout the holidays, starting from Saturday July 27.

Pedaloes were introduced to the park last year, the first time boating had taken place there for many years.

“The pedaloes proved to be a very popular addition to Sefton Park’s attractions last summer so we were very pleased that we could bring them back this summer, ” said Councillor Peter Mitchell, Mayoral Lead on Parks and Open Spaces.

“We want to make our parks and green spaces full of life and animation and the pedaloes are a great way of doing that.

“And, if we have the same hot weather we have enjoyed in the last few weeks, what better way will there be of cooling off than taking a pedaloe trip on the lake!”

The pedaloes are operated by the charity Local Solutions and they cost £5 per vessel to hire.
