Grassendale Park is one of Liverpool’s finest residential addresses and provides residents with an enviable lifestyle. In the 1840’s the Aigburth land company embarked upon an exciting project and formed the society of persons to set about building well proportioned villas for their own residence. The venture was so successful and demand so high the second suburb, Cressington Park, was laid out on the adjoining land using similar principles. A selection of properties have gained Grade II status.Grassendale Park has a private entrance and is maintained to a fine standard. In order to protect Grassendale Park and similar areas of architectural and historic interest, it was designated a conservation area in 1968 and subsequently extended in 1996. Cressington Park and Fulwood Park hold the same status.For the benefit of residents, Cressington Park Railway Station was opened in 1873 to provide easy access to Liverpool city centre and beyond. Many years later speed restrictions were applied to the roadways to provide a safe and enjoyable environment in which people could reside.
