History of Knowsley Safari Park
The park was opened in July 1971 by Edward Stanley. Initially, the road through the park was 3.5 miles (5.6 km), with visitors driving past lions, cheetahs, monkeys, giraffes, zebras, elephants, and various antelope. Eventually increasing the rush in this route, an additional 1.5 miles (2.4 km) of the road was added in 1973. Then a few more animals like camels, buffalo, white rhino, and tigers were added to the park.
The Knowsley Safari Park was home to a former RAF airfield that closed after the end of World War II. This was known as No 49 SLG or RAF Knowsley Park on 13 May 1942 – Nov 1944.
