I can't believe that I've not been here before. Free parking and a massive park with a lake, different gardens and an excellent Tea Shop. Well maintained paths lead around the park, I took the shorter one which meanders around the lake. I went on a weekday morning and it was incredibly popular with all ages. Really nice cup of...

I have been a few times to the cafe, and I'm always disappointed it's such a shame as it could be so much better. The food is very basic, poor quality and the seating area is always over crowded. The toilers are rundown and all in all I wouldn't bother with the cafe if there was a better alternative nearby.... More

Nice walk, very flat . Plenty of seating area wher you can keep stopping and have a rest. Pretty flowers and well kept garden as you are walking around. There is a lovely cafe halfway around where you can stop and have homemade sandwiches and cake. On a lovely day there is plenty of outdoor space to sit. They even... More

Golden Acre park is a little more difficult to get to from the city centre on public transport but it's worth the extra travel. Its a great alternative to Roundhay Park which can often be a little overcrowded. The walk around the park is beautiful and there is ample parking. In addition to this there is a lovely cafe.

It is a very calming experience as I visit this park with family, we walked around the pond/lake? and had a great meal while looking at the amazing view. It is reachable by bus as what I and my family had done, however most preferably to go by car.

Great walk round the lake. Plenty of space for kids to run round. No playground here though. Sometimes it's nice to go with the kids and not have to spend ages pushing the swings!
