In September 2012 new footpaths were opened up in the dock area south of Birkenhead, making possible again a direct walk to New Brighton promenade. This walk takes advantage of the new access gained after a twelve-year campaign. It is flat, without stiles and almost traffic-free despite being a town walk. You can take a buggy as it is all paved, although a dog might fine it hard going. There are cafes and toilets at four points on the walk and a children's playground in the one park that it goes through. It may not be for serious walkers, but it's fine for a winter's day, has lovely views of the Mersey and the Liverpool waterfront and can best be done by public transport.
