Kite flying, Otterspool Promenade
Otterspool Promenade opened to the public in July 1950, following an idea first put forward by the City Engineer John Brodie in 1919. The excavation of the Mersey road tunnel produced vast quantities of rock and gravel which had to be taken from the workings. The solution to the problem was resolved when it was realized that a river wall was being constructed as a preliminary to the building of Otterspool Promenade some four miles from the tunnel. The promenade was later extended and in 1982 the Festival Gardens were opened.
