The Sefton Coastal Footpath starts as you walk onto Crosby Marine Park at the bottom of South Road in Waterloo. The site is ideal for many informal activities such as birdwatching, flying kites, walking, picnics. Facing west, there are fine views of the Gormley’s, the docks, North Wales and excellent sunsets. The path also features Anthony Gormley’s Another Place which is a collection of 100 life size statutes is on the beach at Crosby. The state of the tide will affect how many you can see! The navigable shipping channel for Liverpool docks run parallel to the beach so you may well see large ships just off the shore.
