I live in yeadon and walk round the dam approx 3 times a week. The council has now refurbished an old area near the top end which is very nice. 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

We come to the Tarn a lot in summer and really love to spend a lazy afternoon walking round with an ice cream. The wildlife is a plus but when the boats are out it is fantastic.. they go pretty quick too. Bread for the ducks is a must.

How typical of the ignorant parents of today who seem to think it is fine to let their kids do as they like. The 'no cycling' signs at the tarn apply to everyone and do not exclude your children. I am not an OAP but use the tarn on a daily basis and regularly see children with no regard for... More

We've been visiting this lake for years, ever since our son was a baby ( he's now 10 .) It's always been a lovely place to have a walk round the lake feeding the ducks, watching the sailing boats & planes at the airport next door, finishing with a play on the playground for our son & maybe a trip...

The Late September sunshine gave myself and Jackie a chance to fill our lungs with Yorkshire's finest fresh air so we decided to visit Yeadon Tarn in Leeds. This wonderful lake set in parkland near to the Leeds/Bradford airport is an hidden gem and is enjoyed by all age groups. The lake is a abundant with wild fowl and fish... More

Just returned from another visit and walk around the Tarn, brought our young grandson here this time and he enjoyed feeding his bread to the many ducks and occasional swans. He then had a good play in the children's playground with the many rides and climbs etc for children of all ages. There were sailing dinghy's on the tarn for... More
