As the weather warms up and we look forward to summer, we can make the most of the outdoor areas across Liverpool ONE including Chavasse Park. Families across Liverpool will be happy to hear of the return of the Nature Trail once again this year. The Liverpool ONE Nature Trail is a self-guided tour, and offers children aged 4 – 11 a chance to interact with Chavasse Park’s natural environment and learn about the flora and fauna that call the park home. Pick up a Nature Trail booklet from the Information Centre and get close to nature in the heart of the city.
The Nature Trail is best enjoyed on a sunny day when Chavasse Park feels like an idyllic green oasis in the heart of the city. Young explorers can pick up a a booklet from the Information Centre on Wall Street to follow when they embark on their exciting adventure! You an also download and print at home on the link below.
The trail begins with a ‘warm-up’ on Thomas Steers Way – opposite the giant Sugar House Steps. From here, little explorers are encouraged to follow the Nature Trail map, ascending the stairs into Chavasse Park, before beginning their search for the Nature Trail signposts hidden in the undergrowth.
At each signpost, adventurers must undertake a task that involves investigating that area; perhaps they’ll be asked how many different bugs they can find, identify the species of trees from their leaves, or, investigate why lichen might grow on their bark!
The trail finishes back on Thomas Steers Way near our fountains.
