A nice place for a stroll.

This is a relatively small but nicely designed park in the town centre. It also has a pleasant little cafe and plenty of benches and I must say that my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a quiet hour here, simply doing nothing, which seemed the right thing to do.

Nice park to just sit and relax, cafe in the park is good too. Sunken garden was very pretty. Took a lovely little stroll around and enjoyed my time here.

Tranquility....
May 2020
....right in the middle of town....

This is the only park I know with a dentist in the grounds!

A very clean and pleasant destination, which is well kept.

There's something for everyone here, including well laid out pathway which takes you around the perimeter of the park, a well manicured Croquet Green (new members welcome) Tennis Courts, Basketball and five a side pitch. Additionally there's an kiddies adventure play area and an exercise patch too.

There's also a nice little garden and a meadow. Proper nice.

Although there's a cafe, which was closed at the time of visiting/writing (during the great lockdown of 2020). There's plenty of seating around the cafe area, with plenty of benches dotted around the park too.

A worthwhile destination to enjoy a picnic, with parking nearby.

The loos are clean and well maintained.

Great place with a car park nearby

Great venue and a nice park.
Parking spaces are nearby in the car park!
A must go when they hold the ice skating, even if you don't they have benches nearby to watch or take photos for your family/friends.

Beautiful gardens for a stroll with your dogs.

Wonderfully kept gardens in the town centre just behind Sainsbury's. A croquet lawn too.. We were lucky with the weather and the sun shone on this wonderful open space.

Food fair

Well monitored and marshalled event.
Lots of choices just a shame about the weather.
Some interesting food but struggling to understand the relevance of some stands

Once upon a time...
Sep 2019 • Solo
there was a whole lot more .

Yep, the bandstand is gone long ago with the bowling green and the golf putting play area which has also disappeared, in addition to the grass tennis courts. Long long ago there was a fabulous small pool for the toddlers to have lotsa fun.

However, we do now have a much needed childrens play area, which is wonderful, but this could have been situated elsewhere within the park instead of at the expense of the bowls. And now a not so much needed fenced off private, membets only, croquet lawn, which is evidently empty, (evidenced by my daily walk through the grounds) what a waste of space let alone community needed facility of the once sited lawn tennis.

So it aint what it used to be, BUT, it still remains (most days) a lovely park, whether for a picnic, a kids/adults kick about or just a stroll, it's great for kids as well as us older folk.

The Cafe is super reasonably priced, the tennis court is available to all to hire as is basketball. The small kids playground is free as is rightly just, strolling the park. Nice.

Beautiful place that the council want to ruin!
Sep 2019
This is one of the nicest parks in town. I have been visiting for many years and it never disappoints. There is a wonderful children’s adventure playground and it is often used for special events - the Local and Live music festival is always wonderful. I hope the council does not manage to spoil it with their plans to build and office complex and theatre on part of the park.

Great picnic location

Lovely place to have a picnic in good weather. They've recently done lots of work here to improve the playground and the flower beds and gardens are always well maintained.

‘Local & Live’

Sometimes living in a town you forget about a the good things on your doorstep. Ok we were tempted by the music but before we sat down a wander around Calverley Grounds reminded us how beautiful it is.

Plenty of grass for children to play, well kept flower beds and a lovely cafe make it a great place to spend time with the family or friends.

We brought our own food and drink and spent a brilliant few hours soaking up the atmosphere and talking to friends.
