A Guide To The Best Parks In Leeds

by Lydia (follow)
The top parks in Leeds to add to your to-do list

We are very fortunate to have so many beautiful parks and playgrounds in Leeds and often it can be quite daunting to choose the perfect one to go to. We have compiled a list of the best ones around for you to choose from:

Roundhay Park

Roundhay Park is one of the most popular parks in Leeds due to its size, grandeur and array of things to see and do. It covers over 700 acres of rolling parkland, lakes, woodlands, formal gardens and contains several cafes, two playgrounds, the popular visitor attraction Tropical World and much more.

Meanwood Park

Meanwood Park is 4 miles north of Leeds city centre and is approximately 29 hectares in area. The landscape, which is rich with the remnants of the industrial heritage of the area includes woodland, meadows, a stream and areas of mown grass. The main draw to this park is the Meanwood Valley Trail and the Nature Reserve, where families can experience the great outdoors along a 7 mile stretch of countryside.

Golden Acre Park

This popular park in North Leeds is renowned for its wonderful gardens, popular tea rooms and circular lakeside walk. At 55 hectares in size, it is located near to two of Leeds' most treasured nature reserves, Breary Marsh and Adel Dam. It is also part of the Meanwood Valley Project 2018-19 which seeks to involve local people in the wonderful wildlife of the area.

Horsforth Hall Park

Horsforth Hall Park is a large community park six miles out of Leeds city centre. It is a fantastic place to visit and has a specially designed outdoor integrated play facility which allows disabled and able bodied children under the age of eight to play together. The equipment is designed to provide various stimuli, including role play and the development of manipulative skills. This play area was the first of its kind in Leeds with HIPPO (The Horsforth Integrated Play Project) and Mencap working together with the Parks and Countryside service for the benefit of the local community. There is also a play area for older children with a new spiders web climbing feature.
