  • The title says it all! It's a beautiful setting with an interesting history in the centre of the old spa town of Harrogate. It also has a great ice cream stall!

  • Visit in November. Beautifully kept with fantastic mixture of flowers, shrubs and trees. Cafe in the centre with reasonable prices. Huge childrens play area plus separate (and popular) skate park. Can't wait to return again the summer.
  • It contains one of the best parks you can take your children, but it's difficult not to be acutely aware the wealthy people of Harrogate have spent their tax money on providing something lovely for themselves. Doesn't that kind of defeat the point if tax? Why can't the children of Middlesbrough enjoy a park like this?
  • Beautiful.ly kept AND fascinating. So many springs rise here. Sometimes completely different types within a few feet. A good place just to while away and unwind.
  • Such a beautiful park and location. We love visiting it in holiday and our kids still find it fun, even into early teens.
  • Beautifully kept with excellent playground. There are other facilities such as skate park, boating lake, crazy golf, pitch and putting, tennis. Also various options for snacks.
