The Friends of Walton Hall Park’s chair and organizer, Chrissie Byrne, was well-known throughout the city for her fervent defense of Liverpool’s parks and green spaces. At the age of 51, she passed away.

She was the chair of the Liverpool park friends forum. Liverpool parks and green spaces have friends organizations that work together to make us all stronger to help run them and work alongside Liverpool city council to help improve the parks for the whole community and visitors alike.
Chrisie Byrne’s message: friends of Walton hall park
I started the group in 2014 when I could see the park was in decline and I wanted to make a difference to the park I used in my childhood and so had my children. I was helped and advised by Liverpool City Council to start the group and we advertised for members, within days we formed our Committee, and still today they are the original Members who are from all the various parts of the park. The group since then has grown and made a huge difference to the park and we feel we can do a lot more, I would encourage people to get involved with us and help make a difference in their community and park.
