The Friends of Waterloo Seafront Gardens are an active and vibrant voluntary group of local residents interested in restoring and promoting the local sea front gardens and Potter’s Barn Park.

The gardens sit in a conservation area in the seaside town of Waterloo, North Liverpool. A 15 minute train journey from the city centre. There are four distinctive public gardens to enjoy along the seafront:

Marine Garden, Crescent Garden, Adelaide Garden and Beach Lawn.

The gardens are located just a short walk from Crosby marine lake, beach and sand dunes. The world famous Antony Gormley ‘Another Place’ statues stand on the beach.

Waterloo itself hosts a number of excellent restaurants, which include the picturesque Lakeside Adventure Centre.

The area is easily accessible by road, rail and bus.

A big thank you to everyone who came along to help in the Gardens during 2023 – a quick tot up from the record book shows that we had 158 volunteers at our monthly litter picks (1 hour), and 199 at our three regular monthly gardening sessions (usually 2 hours each), which means that we have spent at least 556 hours working in the gardens!  We know that others also spend time gardening and litter picking on their own, so thank you to those people too.
