Liverpool Parks
Everton Park
Artist Nils Norman has worked closely with Liverpool’s Parks & Environment Service and parks experts – walking and photographing Liverpool's major green spaces which include Sefton, Princes, Greenbank, Everton and Wavertree parks and Birkenhead park on the Wirral.

This website is an ongoing photographic depository and interactive database of Liverpool’s amazing parks and greenspaces, compiled by the artist in collaboration with the city’s Park Rangers and hopefully you. Each park visited has been walked and photographed, in order to share and draw attention to the unique architecture, history, design and natural details of each.

To complement the project, a light-hearted advertising campaign, launched on 3 June 2008, draws attention to Liverpool’s unique and often little-known parks.

This playful campaign repackages each park’s identity as if it were a product or holiday destination, sometimes alluding to phrases and buzzwords of classic popular adverts. The posters will appear on buses, bus shelters, in stations and on billboards citywide during the summer of 2008. The documentation can be found on the Artwork page.
How to get involved
The results of this exploration can be found on the Parks & Greenspaces pages which have interactive maps with pop up photos and information for you to visit and two illustrated walks are also included to get you going.
We would like to add your images, walks and special places as well - you can email these to Nils who will upload them onto the park maps to create a diverse and unique database of visual and anecdotal material of Liverpool’s historic public spaces by the people that know them best which we hope will be a future resource for the curious.

Visible Virals is part of the year-long public art programme commissioned by the Liverpool Culture Company as part of European Capital of Culture 2008, managed by Liverpool Biennial and supported by Liverpool City Council Parks & Environment Service and Merseytravel.
