Two miles north-east of Liverpool city centre lies Stanley Park, a 110-acre, Grade II registered green space sandwiched between the stadiums of Liverpool (Anfield) and Everton (Goodison Park) Football clubs and a predominantly late-19th and 20th-century residential area.

As originally intended 87 years earlier Stanley Park would have provided the McCartneys and hundreds of families like them with an attractive open space to play and relax away from their tenement block. Jim probably had fond memories of his first visits to the park with his parents and siblings when they lived in Everton during the early 1900s and almost 50 years on, was keen to bring his own family here.
67 years later the entire park has been restored to its original glory.
