A little gem of a park with something for everyone. Kids can play, couples can stroll around the lake, twitchers can twitch to their hearts content, putters can play a round, and everyone else can sit and relax in the beautiful surroundings. Come, enjoy, leave with a smile!
Beautiful park with lovely playground, a pond with ducks, herons and kingfishers. A great cafe and a lovely playground, outdoor adult gym and parkour.
A large and beautiful open space offering something for just about everyone, including tennis, bowls, cricket, golf, two playgrounds, lakes, woodland walks, a meadow and arboretum, cafe and even an animal farm! What more can a park possibly offer!
The park has activities for all - a walled garden, bowls greens, a running circuit, a playground, a wildlife pond, a lake for wildlife, a community sports pavilion, a library and beautiful open spaces and magnificent mature trees. It is one of Sheffield's heritage parks.
The park is beautiful, the flowers/gardens are always immaculate with different themes. There is a large play area for younger and older children, a pond to feed the ducks and now it's even better with a pop up cafe. I love being in this park.
Wide open spaces where children can chase about. Playground for children. Also football pitches and cricket pitch. High up so ideal for kite flying. Adjacent to Northcliffe woods with pond area and lots of wildlife. Model railway which give rides also situated in woods.
An excellent facility well used by the local population. Pudsey Park provides a welcome oasis for everyone from young families to those who love a game of bowls or, in summer months, to listen to the brass bands. There is also a visitor centre with wildlife exhibits.
A beautiful space with something for everyone whatever the weather whatever the season. You can spend a whole day, or just an hour. With Tropical World for the children and quiet garden areas for relaxation, cafes and walks and wildlife in abundance; the whole family can enjoy time at Roundhay.
Sandringham Park is one of the gems in Wetherby with children's play area and playing field. It has areas of wildlife and natural beauty and is a place for every age. A place to have tranquility or be active an the adult gym equipment or sit for a while.
Saturday parkruns, Sunday carboots, dog-walking, cycling, picnics, Summer carnivals, kite-flying festivals, cricket, bowls, riding on the Land Train, sitting on a bench. All this and more happening at Sewerby Cliffs. And then there's the view.
The Park, Kilnwick
A new community created park, that opened to the public on the 2nd of September 2017. It is a fabulous combination of recreational and educational facilities and hosts regular structured youth events called "Kilnwick Parklings."
Incomparable open space in centre of beautiful spa town.
My local park is everything that I and the local community need. It’s adjacent to the bigger Becketts Park and the University of Leeds. It is used for senior and junior football matches and regular cross country running during the Autumn/Winter. The West Park Residents Association help to protect and beautify the park.
