“A very pleasant park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I have been visiting Scarborough and Peasholm Park since I was a small child. It holds many happy memories for me. I don't think it is quite as nice now as it used to be in the past. It has a Japanese theme with pagodas etc and an island in the middle of the lake. In the pst there was a Buddha in a sort of grotto at the top of the island in the lake and, after dark a waterfall lit by multi-coloured floodlights. A brass band used to play on the floating bandstand on the lake. All that seems to have gone now but it is still a pretty and tranquil place with some nice strolls through Peasholm Glen.

“Enjoy the peace and quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

A great place just to walk around and enjoy. During the day, sit and listen to the birds on the lake and in the evening the lights make it very special.

“sunny walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A lovely well kept park with a small bistro, a coffee/snack kiosk, plenty for children to do, inc an old fashioned log flume.
A large lake and plenty of seating to enjoy the views with your coffee.
