The World Urban Parks European Congress will be held this year at New Brighton on the Wirral (17-21 October), in part as a celebration of the 170th anniversary of the opening of Birkenhead Park, the first publicly-funded park in the world. This year also marks the bicentenary of the birth of Edward Kemp who was first appointed superintendent of the park in 1843 and remained in post (albeit from 1860 onward as a consulting superintendent) until his death.
