In 2012, Alder Hey made a land swap agreement with Liverpool City Council involving part of Springfield Park.
This enabled us to build a new state-of-the-art hospital on 9.4 hectares of Springfield Park, right next to our old hospital buildings. As part of the arrangement we also agreed that we would return the same amount of land we borrowed once the new hospital was built and our old buildings were demolished.
Our commitment to returning Springfield Park to Liverpool City Council and the local community remains. We will honour our promise to return 9.4 hectares of land and have appointed Groundwork Cheshire and Merseyside to deliver phase one of the Springfield Park restoration by the end of 2020. We are continuing to demolish the remainder of our old hospital buildings with an aim to return all 9.4 hectares of parkland by 2023.
As Europe’s first hospital in the park and a leading advocate of children’s health, we also recognise that there is a real opportunity to greatly enhance Springfield Park in the future; improving the quality of life of children in the city as well as our local community, our patients, families and staff.
Our aspiration is to create something really special and to deliver this goal, we will work closely with Liverpool City Council, local residents, businesses, environmental groups and other partners to identify potential sources of funding and create a much improved Springfield Park.
