  As described in "A History of Liverpool" in the year 1907

In 1835 it would have been easy for the Town Council at comparatively small expense to surround the town, as it then was, with a continuous ring of parks. The Town Council was too much engrossed with other questions, and too eager for economy. The first fifteen years of the reformed Council were very fully occupied with urgent reforms : it was these years which produced the great building acts, the first clearance of the slums, the initiation of the new water supply, and the origination of the public library, and amid all these activities it is perhaps not surprising that parks were forgotten. In 1848, indeed, the Newsham estate was purchased with a view to turning it into a public park, but nothing was done. The truth is that in the middle years of the century a distinct slackening is noticeable in the zeal for public improvement. The town was flourishing ; everybody was engrossed in the building up of fortunes ; and as there was no considerable body of opinion to which these things were of secondary interest, the Council was loth to undertake new and costly enterprises.

But in 1868 the spirit of improvement revived again, and the first question taken in hand was the provision of parks. In that year parliamentary powers were obtained for the creation of no less than three great public pleasure-grounds - Sefton, Newsham and Stanley Parks, costing in all 670,000. From that time onwards no good opportunity of obtaining fresh breathing-spaces has been neglected, the latest and most beautiful of these acquisitions being that of Calderstones Park. Private munificence has come to the aid of public funds, both in the provision of land (as in the case of the princely gift of Wavertree Playground in 1895, or of Bowring Park in 1906) or in the equipment of the parks with palm-houses and aviaries. Over forty churchyards and small greens have been laid out in various parts of the city, and the total area of parks and playgrounds now provided by the city for the health and amusement of its citizens amounts to over 1,000 acres.
