  • The Harrogate Stray is a fantastic piece of land surrounding the Spa Town's centre and is perfect for social activities from a small picnic through to a full sized football game. Every Saturday you can join the Park Run event and on Sundays several football matches can be found set up (when in season). You are only a couple of minutes away from the town centre and, if you look carefully, you will find free car parking zones.
  • A large open area of grass in the centre of Harrogate. The stray is very popular with dog walkers. There are often military fitness classes during the week/end and football. Parts of the stray can get very boggy, so good boots/shoes are a must.
  • A big open space, with lots of friendly locals playing. A pleasant walk.
  • An expanse of grass area that's well kept by the local council and also local fairs and other events football matches can take place here
  • Beautiful open spaces just to walk and enjoy. Lovely
