This is a great place to come for a walk, it's refreshing to walk around and the scenery is really good. There's not a great deal else to say but you should visit yourself then you'll see and enjoy.

There is a lake with ducks, swans and various birds that you can feed. There is also a children's area which is fenced off for safety so you can sit and watch the children playing on the swings. It is approx. 1 mile around the Tarn with various seats to sit on when you require a break. Planes take off... More

A lovely park like setting just outside Yeadon and almost directly at the end of the now very busy Leeds Bradford Airports main runway.A huge lake frequented by numerous birds also used for tuition in boating, plenty of seating around the lake and a relatively short time to walk around and its all FREE.

Lovely nature lake right next to the runway of Leeds Bradford Airport. The miniature boat hobby people are very dedicated and there's usually representation on a Sunday with lots of excited kids looking at the little boats. Good parking, usually an icecream van. Little playground, ducks, canada geese, moorhens and swans in regular attendance. Exciting to see the planes coming... More

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.
