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

My wife and I are frequent visitors to the tarn. The walk round is about 1 mile and is a pleasant way of spending an hour or so bird watching etc. During the school holidays it had been a surprise to see so many kids in canoes and sailing boats thoroughly enjoying themselves. Well worth a visit.

Nice wide open space for a picnic, playground is varied and usually clean, lovely walk around the tarn with plenty of wildlife for the kids to spot. There is smile free parking and usually a nice cream van on site.

Walked round this hidden gem late afternoon and it was still busy. Lovely and flat with an easy path to walk on. Loads of wildlife, the fish were so fascinating jumping out of the water. Downside was people not cleaning up after their dogs, and would benefit from a cafe some where to sit and chill. Would also have liked... More

Came here today for the first time. I live on the doorstep of roundhay park but wanted a change. Came here with my 2 year old. Had a fab time walking round the tarn, looking at the boats & aeroplanes and playing in the park. I love the no bike rule as it meant my little girl could walk/run around... More

There is a grebe nesting for the first time I think and swans are trying to nest.let's hope they can find a secure area. First time for them I believe.... More

Great place to go on a sunny afternoon, great for dogs to have a run around and a swim in the lake, also good if you and your partner want to go on a walk you should go here and have a stroll around the lake and enjoy seeing the wildlife. Also good for photographers or plane spotters as it... More
