Parkgate is a village on the Wirral Peninsula, in the part that lies in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, in the North West of England. It is situated on the coastline of the River Dee, adjoining 100 square kilometres of salt marsh, separated by a sandstone former sea wall. At the 2001 Census Parkgate had a population of 3,702.

Parkgate was part of the Neston-cum-Parkgate Urban District from 1894 until 1933 when the name of the urban district was changed to Neston Urban District. In the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Neston Urban District joined with the Municipal Borough of Ellesmere Port and various other nearby municipalities to become Ellesmere Port and Neston district municipality. The Cheshire West and Chester unitary authority took over in 2009.
