New Mersey Shopping Park (also known as Speke Retail Park) is a major out of town retail park located in Speke, Liverpool, England. It opened in 1985.

With 40 stores and services, New Mersey Park is one of the largest complexes of its kind in the country. It is similar in concept to the Merry Hill Shopping Centre in the West Midlands, some 80 miles away, which was developed at around the same time.

The park is situated alongside the A561 road near to Liverpool John Lennon Airport five miles (8 km) south-east of Liverpool city centre.[1] The majority of construction occurred in 1999 to 2000 when the complex was home to thirty one units and had a combined total gross internal floor area of 472,605 sq ft (43,906.4 m2), New Mersey Park has since seen the construction of several new units to the south of the A561 adjacent to the former Speke Airport terminal building (which is now the Crowne Plaza LJLA Hotel).[1] There are parking spaces for approximately 2,000 vehicles at the park.[1]

Some of the stores within the park include an Argos, B&Q, Halfords, Marks & Spencer, Mothercare, Next, WHSmith.
