Grassendale Park was laid out in the 1840’s by the Aigburth Land Company who formed the 'Society of Persons' looking to build well proportioned villas for their own residence. The venture was so successful and demand was high the second suburb, Cressington Park, was laid out on the adjoining land on the same principles. A selection of properties within the parks have gained a Grade II status. The properties were designed in an elegant fashion under the supervision of experienced architects and master craftsmen. Grassendale Park has a gated entrance and has been maintained to an excellent standard. In order to protect these areas of architectural and historic interest, both parks were designated conservation areas in 1968 subsequently extended in 1996. In 1873 a new railway station was opened within Cressington Park to give residents in both areas easy access to Liverpool city centre and beyond. Speed restrictions were applied later to provide a safe environment in which people could reside. The surrounding district is established and offers a wide and comprehensive range of amenities including shopping facilities along Aigburth Road or alternatively at Allerton Road which is only a short distance away. The Mersey Retail Park offers a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities and is situated close by. Excellent schooling is available in the surrounding area as well as a number of places of worship. Public transport services are readily available including regular bus services along Aigburth Road as well as rail links via several nearby railway stations including the aforementioned Cressington Park Station. A comprehensive local road network brings Liverpool city centre to within easy reach and nearby motorway links allow easy access to further conurbations such as Manchester and Warrington. Both national and international travel is provided for at the John Lennon Liverpool Airport. Recreation ground and open space can be enjoyed at several nearby locations including Sefton Park, the Historic Sudley House and Gardens or Cressington and Grassendale Esplanades with their fine decorative railings and balustrades as well as lamp standards. Excellent views of the River Mersey can be fully appreciated and on clear days the Wirral Peninsular and Welsh Hills are clearly visible.
