Garston ward is an electoral division of Liverpool City Council centred on the Garston district of the city. It was created in 1902 where three councillors were elected. It was dissolved in 1953.

The ward was recreated in 2023 following a review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England which 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. The Garston ward was reinstated as a two-member ward from the western half of the former Speke Garston ward and the southern half of the former Cressington ward.[1] The ward contains the Port of Garston, Garston Leisure Centre, and the New Mersey Shopping Park.
