Broadgreen is a suburb of Liverpool, Merseyside, England. Located on the eastern edge of the city, it is bordered by Old Swan to the north west, Knotty Ash to the north east, Childwall to the south and, further east, Bowring Park in the borough of Knowsley. Until 2004, it was a Liverpool City Council Ward.

Description

Historically a part of Lancashire, Broadgreen is primarily a residential area, made up of semi-detached and detached houses. As a small district, it often merged with Childwall, a larger suburb of the city. It is home to Broadgreen Hospital, Broadgreen Primary School and Broadgreen International School

Broadgreen covers an area of just over a square mile (2.97 km2) and in the 2001 Census had a population of 14,889 (6,919 males, 7,970 females).

Transport

Situated close to the end of the M62, the area is served by Broad Green railway station, where regular trains depart for Liverpool city centre, Manchester, Wigan and St Helens.
