Lovely local puddle of water

Nicely maintained mile (almost) circular walk on pathways, local family beauty spot, park - lots of water birds to feed.

Yeadon Tarn is the coldest place in the world; all year. Don't fall in - the water is a biohazard. Too many bad bacteria apparently. If you do fall in, immediatley smother yourself in Yakult to cancel out the bad bacteria with good bacteria. Other than that - it's a nice walk.

A very scenic and wonderful place to visit, the pathway around the tarn is ideal to push your son or daughters pram whilst watching the ducks.

A very nice spot to visit with young children--especially after visiting Billy Murgs! Walk off the excess chips and allow the children to feed the Birdlife--swans, ducks, geese, moor hens, as well as listen to the screeching of the sea gulls a very windy day when we went with our 20month grandson but he had a lovely time running around...

Twice round the dam on a windy day watching the sailing and feeding the ducks soon blew the cobwebs away. the area is easy to park at and well maintained with the added bonus of the odd plane taking off or landing to keep the kids amused. Park area is well maintained and often an ice cream van present.

This is not a large lake but is at some height above the city of Leeds and on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. It is a good place to stop and walk the dog and enjoy the boats. Some interesting countryside nearby-and the characterful Yeadon also. Free access.

There isn't much to do aside from walk around Yeadon Tarn. No activities for children, limited cafés and dogs everywhere. I thought there would be more routes to walk but no, rubbish strewn also in the water. A shame as the drive there was very scenic.

Having a day off work during the week I take my 3 year old son here every other week and he loves it. "Dad, can I feed ducks and see the planes?" It really is a little treasure of a place. Clean, tidy, and other visitors car for it which is great to see. Odd dog walker spoils it for... More

Another forgotten delight. We called in on a sunny Sunday, and found the sight of little sailing dinghies racing on the lake most appealing. The walk round the circumference is about 1 kilometer. The edge of the lake is full of wild flowers and although there were many families walking and playing by the lake, there was plenty of room... More
