Well-cared for park with gardens, fields, lake and cafe. The walk around the lake is worth making. The cafe serves a good range of food and drinks, but is often extremely busy - as is the park. Unfortunately, the park is not large and so can seem packed full of people sometimes. It is often difficult to park.

This is a lovely park just situated on otley road. It had 2 large car parks, no charge, one on otley road side and one up the back road from eccup. It's quite local to us, birds and Canada geese on the water. There is a cafe that has just been extended, a bit pricy. But nice and clean and... More

A visit to Golden Acre brightens any day, no matter which season. The gardens are beautiful. Children love the lake and ducks etc. Dogs and dog owners love the outing. Older people are frequent visitors too... it's a lovely retreat for all. The café can get very busy at weekends; it serves really nice coffee, sandwiches, cakes, ice creams, various... More

A lovely sunny February day but due to the time of the year and the previous wet weather the path in places was muddy and there were a few puddles. However having been before ( more than once) I...

This park on the Northern fringes of Leeds is easily reached and parking is good. The gardens are very extensive and the is plenty of open grassland for pet exercise and ball games. The wi9ldlife walks are well designed and there is plenty to see. Catering facilities are good, withe views over the lake. We have enjoyed many days there.

A peaceful haven so close to Leeds city centre! Easy parking, good walkways although very muddy after the rain so go prepared with boots! Plenty of ducks to feeds, lovely coffee shop and toilet facilities, interesting information about the park and its wildlife.

Good car park with tunnel under busy road to walk to the park. Visited on a wet day and some of the paths had huge puddles so think about footwear. The tranquillity of the settings were rather spoilt by the small number of dogs that were not controlled by their owners and barking loudly. There were loads of mums with... More

Always an enjoyable walk around Golden Acre Park. Plenty of car parking spaces. Lots of bird species for the avid twitcher and a cafe for refreshments. Enjoy
