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.
