Sunken Garden, Woolton Woods
Woolton Woods originally formed part of the estate of Woolton Hall, which from 1772 was owned by the Ashton family. The site was purchased from the Gaskell family in 1917 for 12,000 by Col James P Reynolds of Dove Park (Reynolds Park), who was the last owner of the property. He sold most of the estate to Liverpool Corporation, but dedicated the 10 acre strip of land fronting Woolton Woods to be used as a recreation ground for local people.
The 'Dutch Garden of Meditation' was created in 1928 and although the pool and garden ornaments have long since disappeared, it is still a sheltered and tranquil spot, now known as the 'Sunken Garden'.
