GREAT SPOT

Yeadon Tarn is very nice for a stroll around, it is usually very clean and pleasant. Due to people sailing and fishing there is usually something to see.

A lovely place for a gentle walk or jog. The circuit is flat and so is ideal for anyone with mobility issues. A lap of the tarn is about three quarters of a mile so depending on your fitness level you can do several laps. A bit of a warning the route is very popular with dog walkers so inevitably,... More

We often take our puppy there as the paths are made up so in wet whether the pooch doesn't get filthy dirty and it's also very good exercise for us, parking is very good and always plenty of spaces.

Marvelous place for walking or strolling and to enjoy the view. Well kept and clean with numerous bins along the route. Enjoy fish and chips form the Little Fisherman whilst walking around.

What a gem. nearly a mile stroll around a well kept lake with ducks, geese and other natural wetland animals. You can practice your angling skills, or take a sailboat, or sail your model vessels. Leeds City Council have done, and are doing a sterling job of hanging on to and maintaining this wonderful amenity. There is also a childrens... More

Depending on which day you visit you may see some radio controlled boats being put through their paces or some canoeing, then there is the... More

Touch of the countryside in town. Lovely walk around the lake - swans, coots, ducks and geese to see. Informative nature signs which are good for children. Nice picnic area and great place to plane watch.
