A very pleasant place for a walk with a dog, with a very good sailing club which offers a wide variety of activities. There's also a BMX track for kids, which appears to be very popular. You can get lots of green flies in some areas, but not too much of an issue. Overall a great day out.

If you like your walks flat then the Tarn is perfect. There's not a hill to be seen. The Tarn is a large manmade lake that is used by the local boating club. It makes a thoroughly enjoyable walk any time of year and the fact that it is right next to the flight path makes it even better still... More

If walking round the lake, watching the fishers and sailing boats with the added events of planes taking off and landing at nearby Leeds Bradford Airport this is for you. Can be cold so adviseable to take warm clothing

A lovely place to go for a walk or to take the children for a ride on their bikes, there is always an ice cream van and why not take some bread to feed the ducks, there is also a BMX track

Great place where you can walk take the children to the park, buy ice-cream feed the ducks watch the planes even feed the carp, my granddaughters favourite pastime. Everyone is friendly and great place for a chat with the locals. Minor point once it gets dark there are more challenging customers, people drinking cans of beer, being loud and challenging... More

Just returned from spending the afternoon at Yeadon Tarn. It's a great (and safe) place to walk round with friends or on your own. Family friendly with information boards about flowers and wildlife. Plenty of ducks, waterfowl and geese - we have even seen a mandarin duck on occasions. Picnic area with tables and plenty of benches dotted around. Sailing... More
