Bright Park is a community heritage venture led by Liverpool Lighthouse to restore a 4.8 acre (2 hectares) of park land to the residents and visitors of Knotty Ash.

Here you’ll find events, volunteer activities and open days being held at Bright Park.

The park has links not only to the Victorian period that led to the construction of Thingwall House in 1869, but further distant links to the Vikings and the Bronze Age.

We’ve got lots of exciting events and opportunities coming up in the next few months and over the summer, so do keep checking back for news, updates and chances to get involved with your new local park.

Get involved!

We have a lively group of volunteers at Bright Park and we’re always looking for enthusiastic people to add to the team. We meet once a month for tea, cake, a chat and planning for future events. There are all kinds of events coming up for you to get involved in. Plus exclusive opportunities for our volunteers coming up over the summer. Fill out your details here to be added to our mailing list and help Bright Park on its historic journey.

Henry Arthur Bright

"As I sit writing at my library window, I see, beyond the lawn, field after field, until at last the eye rests on the spire of a church three miles away. A long red-gabled house, with stone facings, and various creepers trained round it, — a small wood (in which there is a rookery) screening us from a country road, and from the west, — lawns with some large trees and several groups of ever- greens, — and the walled garden, the outer garden, and the orchard ; — it is to these that I invite you. "
