I took my 7 year old son here recently, and we had a wonderful time!
He did ‘pond dipping’ and we had a picnic!
We saw a variety of wild fowl, and just need to remember his binoculars next time!

I visited Rodley Nature reserve in May bank holiday in 2018.
It was hot sunny day and there were hardly any place to sit and there were no ducks nothing only boards. We tried to find the natural stuff but didnt find anything.
Great place just tucked away behind the canal in Ridley. The nature reserve has various different pods and sanctuaries to support all manners of local wildlife. There's small ponds where you can take the kids to fish with nets and keep them occupied for an...More
Only by chance would you find this cracking little nugget of a place. Rodley Nature reserve bordered by the River Aire and Leeds/Liverpool canal is the perfect place to wander or take younger children to experience the wonders of an urban nature reserve. The reserve...More
What a gorgeous nature reserve on the edge of the city. With beautifully laid out paths and hides close to the water, we enjoyed simply strolling round.

Hi Emma, yes we think so! We're still open and the birds are sometimes easier to see at this time of year because they rely on the feeders. We don't have pond dipping at this time of year, but there are some small tanks in the visitor centre and our harvest mice to see there too. We have a cafe with hot drinks and cakes and lots of bird supplies and also some Christmas stock available too. It depends what you're after, but it's a lovely walk around the reserve and you can link up with footpaths and stroll along the canal too. Hope that helps. *sorry for the delay in getting back to you - we've had some technical issues.
