From static art and sculptures to informative trails.
Rimrose Valley, once a local council tip and landfill site, is a 3.5km country park and valley in North Liverpool which provides a vital mosaic of habitats for wildlife in an urban built-up area. Often referred to as a ‘green lung’ it is a sanctuary used by the local community to connect with nature, vital for good health and well-being.
THE SITE IS IMMINENTLY EARMARKED FOR A DUAL CARRIAGEWAY TO BE BUILT RIGHT THROUGH ITS CORE, to facilitate the swift ease of HGV transport to the nearby Liverpool docks. The local community, in their thousands, are determined to stop this and protect their amazing, precious jewel.
This installation, is one of the many projects that Rimrose Valley Friends is currently hosting, to celebrate its beauty and protect its existence. Come along and be part of something wonderful.
