Roundhay Park

Roundhay Park is one of the most popular parks in Leeds due to its size, grandeur and array of things to see and do. Roundhay Park covers over 700 acres of rolling parkland, lakes (great for duck feeding), woodlands, formal gardens and contains several cafes, two playgrounds, the popular visitor attraction Tropical World and much more.

Parking available at both the upper and lower parts of the park.
The park is great for scooters and bike riding but there is also a train (weekends and BH’s) which takes you from the upper and lower parts of the park for £2 a person.

Sutton in Craven Park

Play area, playing fields, multi-use game area, paddling/boating pool and a tea room! Perfect for a day out in Summer!

 


Wharfe Meadows Park, Otley

With amazing riverside walks this park is very pretty. The gardens look great all year round and they are well maintained. Many birds live on the river & weir area so bring your bread to feed the ducks and swans.
With a large playground and skate park for children, there is lots to do for both young and old. An on-site cafe means a hot coffee and sweet treat or an ice cream in on offer! At the far end of the park there are 4 tennis courts and an outdoor gym to burn off the sweet treat!

Farnley Ln, Otley LS21 2RW
