Festival Gardens situated in south Liverpool, on the bank of the Mersey, the gardens are part of the 100 acre former tip site in Otterspool that was redeveloped to house the Liverpool International Garden Festival in 1984.
Liverpool Council bought the site in 2015 - and has an ambitious vision to redevelop it.
This will include preserving the Festival Gardens themselves, while building as many as 2,500 homes on the land around it.
There is also talk of a major leisure attraction being created as part of what will be a £700m 'cultural garden suburb' plan.
Last year the ECHO revealed that the former tip site could cost more than £20m to remediate because of the state of the land.
The council was boosted in its plans in February when the government handed it £10m to help with this process.
The council will be on site to begin this process soon - with a masterplan for the huge area in the works and major announcements for what is to come expected as early as June.
