  • Before WW2 this was a pleasure garden, a place where the young and beautiful of Leeds came to party complete with pool, miniature railway and much more. The war put and end to that and the park was so...  more »

  • What a lovely place spoiled by the state of the paths. My husband and I visited last Sunday afternoon and wished we had not bothered. Without exaggerating the paths were ankle deep in mud. We had our ...  more »

  • A fantastic open space where wildlife can photographically captured, kids can run wild and joggers can workout. I would advise you wear sensible shoes that you don't mind getting muddy if you are to walk or run around the lakes, but other areas are paves and readily accessible (wheelchairs, buggies and walking frames included). There is a great area run by Yorkshire Wildlife that is independent, but accessible through Golden Acre that you should stroll around and support. Hides for observations are well placed and it does attract a good variety of birds.
  • The best place in the whole of Leeds for a nice quiet day out, especially if you like going for long walks or if you like taking the dog for a long walk. It has a giant point with ducks 🦆 for the kids, there is two car parks, in the summer the bottom car park gets very busy but you can always find space in the top car park. It also has wonderful flower displays and a cafe. A beautiful part of Yorkshire
  • With wet lands area, walks, lake with ducks and swans. then the hides for mixture of wild life. lots of different walks well planed escape from the city. picnic areas FREE parking go out for the fresh air
  • This place is beautiful whatever time of year you visit. There's a huge lake with ducks and swans to feed, large areas of grass and beautiful planted gardens. You can follow the paths in a full loop around the park, and there are different routes to choose from. There's also a small tropical garden in a greenhouse which has a waterfall and a fish pond. Very warm and peaceful place to relax a while in the summer. If you come at the right time in the evening you might be lucky enough to see the rabbits flitting about for their evening exercise on the grassed area just behind the greenhouse. If you come after dark you can also spot owls and foxes. There's also a nice cafe which sells drinks and food, but it can get quite busy at the weekends. Parking is free but again is busy on weekends. Public toilets are on site, just turn left after coming out from under the bridge and follow the path, taking another right when it forks. On weekends during the summer there's usually an ice cream van in the main car park. Dogs are allowed to roam off lead here, and there's plenty of space for them to tire themselves out.
  • It was great. We saw two woodpeckers, squirrels ducks and herons. It was great. We went and could play football. Oh and also a doormouse, which we believe to be quite rare. The cafe is quite expensive,but worth it as it was delicious!!! The parking is FREE too. Did you hear me? FREE!!! Here's not many parks with beautiful views, rare birds and animals, with delicious foods all for a low price. All round great day for whole family. Really recomend this beautiful park.
