The $2 million project to create the new Tranmere Garden, “Wirral’s largest hospitality venue”, is scheduled to begin construction. The garden is on the Wirral, next to Tranmere Rovers Football Club. It is expected to open at the end of September. When it opens, it will have space for up to 700 guests.
German Kraft and Northern Terrace have contributed to the project’s funding. Furthermore, Tranmere supporters’ fundraising events have raised an additional £600,000. The park will cost just under £2m.
The first spades will be driven into the ground on April 22 at an event with Wirral Mayor Jeff Green. Construction will start on April 24, 2023. There will likely be a significant Oktoberfest event in September, marking the venue’s whole opening.

The venue is anticipated to draw visitors to the Wirral with its fans. The park will thus house four food vendors and an independent brewery that makes beer. It has reservations for St. Patrick’s Day 2024. Tranmere Park has 700 square meters of indoor and 400 square meters of outdoor space.
Director of Tranmere Garden William Franklin stated that the partnership between the organization, the Tranmere Rovers trust, and the neighborhood is “all coming together to make this work.” Being close to the football team, in Mr. Franklin’s words, “means this is going to be an amazing experience for the fans both home and away” and “show genuine hospitality to those visitors.”
“This is a part of the Wirral community,” he continued. There are several things, but the first is the hospitality this place will offer. Birthday celebrations would be it; businesses have been approaching us. Then there is the issue of the community. People can use it as a gathering place because it is an open area with step-free access.
We encourage community groups, such as mothers and toddlers through care homes, charities, and not-for-profit organizations, to consider Tranmere Park and how it may fit their needs by providing step-free access to a natural garden environment regardless of the weather.
