Think ill give this a miss, last year's was rather disappointing to say the least; I don't recall seeing a single butterfly the whole time we were there! All else that was there, just seemed like moneymaking stalls, all trying to sell you stuff. The walk itself was okay, but its a case of been there, done that, not worth a second helping lol.

A bit early for butterflies but the bloke doing the wood shaping/carving and the pond dipper guys were very interesting. Quite a lot of people appreciated the arty stuff as well.

But yeah - no butterflies lol

frown Ah Matt, really sorry to hear that. It's a beautiful place and yes we did try to sell a few things but only for a pound or two - the BBQ was only a quid a piece as was the facepainting but we're an unfunded charity run completely by volunteers so we have to find running costs somewhere.

It's an unspoilt Nature Reserve, we can't supply butterflies at will, it is completely weather dependant and yes last year was a bit too chilly. We'll just have to hope for nice weather this year.

Last week I was at the park for an hour and saw a couple of dozen as it was a hot day so you just can't tell.

Lots more artworks this year so hopefully that will make up for it. smile

Fair does, just left a little disappointed. I guess if the weather is on your side, with a little bit of help from nature, it could be better this year.

The Open Day this year is showing artwork by local schoolchildren made during workshops over the last few weeks and work by students of Liverpool Community College whose Tourism students have been working on promotional ideas for the park.

We are also hosting an art + craft fair, just giving some local artists + makers the chance to show + maybe sell some of their own work. I hope it'll be a really good day.

The Butterfly Park will then be open every Sunday 12-4pm until September so if you can't make it on the 8th, choose any other sunny Sunday to come down + see more butterflies.
