Broadgreen ward is an electoral district of Liverpool City Council. It was created in 1953. Its boundaries were changed for the 1973 and 1980 elections. The ward was dissolved prior to the 2004 Liverpool City Council election and distributed into the new Knotty Ash ward, and small parts of the Old Swan and Yew Tree wards.[1]

The 2022 review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England decided that the existing 30 wards each represented by three Councillors should be replaced by 64 wards represented by 85 councillors with varying representation by one, two or three councillors per ward.[2] The Broadgreen ward was recreated as a smaller, single-member ward from a section of the previous Knotty Ash and Old Swan wards. The new ward is roughly bounded by Edge Lane Drive, Bowring Park Road, the North Liverpool Extension Line, Alder Road, Queens Drive, Cunningham Road, and Oakhill Road.
