Calderstones Park
(Linda McCartney
Children's Play Area)

Located within Calderstones Park, just a few yards from Calderstones mansion, is the Linda McCartney Children's Play Area, which was officially opened by Paul on 19th July 1998. Paul also unveiled a plaque at the entrance, and planted a Cypress Oak tree (Quercus fastigiata) nearby overlooking the play area.

Linda McCartney Centre
The Play Area is one of several memorials to Linda. The Linda McCartney Centre, a pioneering cancer treatment centre that is part of the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Prescot Street, was opened by the Prime Ministers wife, Cherie Blair, on 24th November 2000.*

Memorial statue, Mull of Kintyre
On the 1st November, 2002, a bronze statue, commissioned and donated by Paul, was unveiled as the centrepiece of a memorial garden in Campbeltown, the main town on the Mull of Kintyre peninsula.
