This is not a large lake but is at some height above the city of Leeds and on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. It is a good place to stop and walk the dog and enjoy the boats. Some interesting countryside nearby-and the characterful Yeadon also. Free access.

There isn't much to do aside from walk around Yeadon Tarn. No activities for children, limited cafés and dogs everywhere. I thought there would be more routes to walk but no, rubbish strewn also in the water. A shame as the drive there was very scenic.

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.

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
