“The friendliest squirrels in the world.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The toilets were very basic and had no soap, and the cafe had no decaff coffee but other than than this park never fails to delight. The pedalos are a must but don't feed the geese, they are very aggressive!

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I had a stroll around Peasholm Park on the 5th June, we were there in the evening so unfortunately all the shops and activities (there were boats you could take out onto the lakes and pitch and putt golf) etc. had closed however it was still an enjoyable hour spent walking around the lakes - there is a Japanese themed island in the middle which was very pretty with pagodas and lots of plants and rockeries. The best part for me was the squirrels! They have obviously been being fed by people as they are not shy at all and come so close, it was an experience we were surrounded by three at one point! Would recommend taking nuts to feed them should you visit they're very friendly :) Overall it's a well kept scenic park and would be a great place to spend a sunny day with a picnic :)

“a lovely park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I remember Peasholm Park from my childhood, it holds some wonderful memories. I visited the park recently with my wife and we enjoyed 3 hours just wandering around the lake and the many walks including the walk up to the Glen bridge and the newly renovated Lily pond.
The café is quite basic and the food and drinks are a little expensive.
If you're in Scarborough then don't miss an afternoon in Peasholm Park.
