New Ferry Butterfly Park

New Ferry Butterfly Park is a small wildlife haven in the urban area of east Wirral. Once the railway goods yard to Bebington station, it can be found at the north end of the station car park (off Bebington Road, behind Aldi). Paths lead round between grasslands rich in wild flowers and patches of trees. Watch out for orchids, mistletoe, ladies fingers, hay-rattle and other unusual species. The Park is humming with insects on a dry summer's day; on wet ones you need to look harder to find where they are sheltering. At least sixteen species of butterfly breed here, but also look for the bumble bees, moths, dragonflies, woodlice, spiders, grasshoppers, anthills and all sorts of other minibeasts. The volunteer wardens will help dip the pond and introduce you to backswimmers, water boatmen, smooth newts and other water life. There is an outdoor art trail have a play on the "Elastastone" as you walk by. Use our nature and art trail sheets to guide you round, or ask the wardens for a guided tour.
