  • Last time I came to Greenhead Park was in 1964 when we were staying with my Grandma! My memories are only sketchy so on a recent visit to Huddersfield I thought I would like to revisit the park. My hu...  more »
  • We went as a family to celebrate my grandson's first birthday. The conservatory cafe was very pretty but lots of tables needed clearing and the choices available for food were limited.  more »

  • Fun place for the family to visit. Lots of playing area. Also sports area for tennis, running, and bowls for all age levels. There is an area for bigger kids to play in the area and a small steam train that can run. The park had different features that remain historic. This includes the war memorial, the temperance fountain, and the paddle area. It is a common place for birds and wild fowl. There are many funky routes to walk, nordic walking, run or cycle. There are dogs that Royal sound felt and there is a green house cafe nearby. Parking can be difficult or it costs £1/h. It isn't time by the minute so it means, either a full pound or no pound. This is even after paying a pound for the first hour.
  • Actually a really nice public park, not only is a huge space with lots there (tennis courts, bowls, cafe, conservatory, kids train etc) but also extremely well kept. Really vibrant atmosphere on a hot sunny weekend, and generally a great place to get out and about on a nice day
  • Open space for children to run around. Two cafes both sell hot & cold drinks food & ice-cream. Public toilets. Play areas with lots of activity
  • Lovely park but I wish people using it didn't leave rubbish, the staff are so good at clearing it up but they shouldn't have to.
  • A lovely place for a walk and leisure. Specific courts for all sort of sports, also a few cafes available. Great for families.
