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

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.

I am not an OAP but use the tarn on a daily basis and regularly see children with no regard for... More
