The Park was opened to the public in 1931. Heswall Lower Village Conservation Area was designated in April 1979; its boundaries are drawn to encompass the original nucleus of the small fishing village, which pre-dated the suburban expansion of Heswall after the arrival of the railway in the late nineteenth century, as well as some of the earliest and best of the later suburban development. The heart of the original settlement, based around Village Road, Raby Close and The Lydiate, can still be discerned and retains much of the character of a typical English Village, including its church and rectory, public house, village hall, shops and groups of cottage scale dwellings, and former farm buildings such as Lydiate Farm and the Old Smithy.
