Larkhill Gardens is one of Liverpool's most unusual open spaces with a large portion of this small site occupied by a pond. Formerly part of one of the city's park estates, the Lark Hill Estate once boasted a grand drive leading to a 18th century Mansion owned by a wealthy Liverpool banker, where the nearby Club Moor Pits had been developed into 'fish ponds'. The area was transformed shortly after World War 1 when land was acquired to meet local housing needs, and the Estate became fragmented. The Mansion was converted into a library and community center, with the land surrounding the ponds remaining as a vestige of the rural estate and a public open space for the new community. Throughout the inter-war years further residential development ensued but thankfully the park 'Larkhill Gardens' - has endured, becoming 'the Ducky' a remarkable oasis within one of the city's more densely populated areas, and a popular and attractive mere contrasting with the neighbouring urban 'desert'
