The infrastructure of Queens Park has been neglected for many years. The concrete and timber seating around the bowling green were crumbling and unusable. The four double sets of gates were severely rusted and no longer operated.
Thanks to a grant from West Wirral constituency fund and donations we were able to restore all the gates and replace all the bowling green benches.
After the success of the Friends first dog show, their second one is on Sunday 31st July 2016 - see below
Each year Wirral Festival of Firsts comes to Hoylake with a great Parade followed by a festival afternoon in Queens ark, Hoylake.
We invited local school children to come and help us plant over 1000 daffodil bulbs in Queens Park. They are around the bowling green and along the main path. They should look brilliant in the spring.
If you would like to go on the Friends volunteer email list and help the village and parks smile, that would be great. It does not mean you are expected to volunteer for everything we do. We all have busy lives, if you can help, great, if not maybe next time.

In 2015 Queens Park received the Green Flag award for the first time in its history. This has been down to the Friends volunteers improving the park with support from the local community, council and businesses.
