  • Great gem of a park just north of Huddersfield town center. Kept lovely by the council it is fair play. Always busy with activity, you can expect to see literally all sorts of people frequenting this park for a whole range of activities. There's a skatepark, tennis courts, cafe, council depot, fountains, gardens and loads more. It actually deserves 5 stars. It's pretty good.
  • Always a nice place to visit as there is plenty to do. Lots a wide open green grass to play, with scenic walking paths all over and around the park. A lake with real life ducks, and if you're really lucky you might see the chicks too. And a few squirrels. Miniature railway is good fun (check timings to avoid disappointment) Tennis courts (bring your own gear & book online in summer to avoid disappointment) Skateboard & BMX park Basketball & football areas Three kids playgrounds (for various ages and abilities) Bowls area (with changing rooms) Conservatory restaurant with tea room Ice Cream van is normally there in good weather and the cafe is usually open all day. There's also an outdoor paddling pool (when the weather's proper gorgeous!) Restrooms are available near the tennis courts and at The Conservatory. Pay and display car park near conservatory. Lots of free parking on the local roads.
  • Great place for running. Always clean and tidy. Had lots of investment recently for the children's play areas.
  • Wonderful park. The people of Huddersfield should be proud to have such a great place to walk in. And on some occasions enjoy music from local brass bands and other types of music. I love going there
  • Such a lovely park, some really well designed children's play areas suitable for all ages. With two cafe's, model railway, tennis courts, bowling green. You can take a short ride on the buggy while either Jack of paddy take the strain. It really is a great park to visit.
