  • Fantastic parkland with undulating paths and a lake. Has cafe and 'land train' for elderly or infirm. Lovely views and quiet atmosphere 
  • Nice place went with my son and family. Nice lake you can hire boats, ice cream s, lots of grass area, a nice and we'll equipped park and the train ride of course 
  • Good place to take the kids it has parking so don't forget to pay and is play. Boating lake and park for kids. Nice if weather is good. Dig friendly as well. 
  • I like shibden park. It's alright. It's fairly quite due to not really being within walking distance of a huge housing estate so it also feels yob free. The cafe there is decent. It lacks a certain charm that sooner or the bigger parks have in Yorkshire but it's worth spending an hour or so having a wonder, getting a drink and feeding the ducks (food can be bought cheaply from the cafe - remember, duck bread duck dead).
  • Great place to take a picnic. Big play area for younger kids, Boating lake, Several small walks, mini train, tractor train, At the top of the park is the old shibden hall with gardens (well worth checking out the history). Also has geo caching and ingress with in the park. (no fishing). They is a cafe and a ice cream shop.
  • Always have enjoyed shebden.. Was a childhood favourite and now my kids love it.
  • I haven't been to Shibden Park for years and decided to visit Shibden Hall. Make sure you have enough time to read all about the fascinating history! The Hall is amazing and a gentleman with a handlebar moustache told us all about Ann Lister and the previous owners. he was extremely knowledgable and very interesting. The park is beautifully kept and the cafe is very reasonably priced. The sell seed to feed the ducks. We ran out of time so we are going back to row a boat on the lake this weekend. Loved it.
  • Lovely grounds, reasonably priced parking although it would be better if it was free :-) nice play area and a good pond to walk around. Plenty of things to do although the small railway was closed when we went.
