Myself and husband took our dog to the park. It is free to get in. The park is divine. It has a huge lake with dragon boats. Waterfalls and Japanese gardens. The cafe is reasonably priced but if you were a family on a budget you could pack a picnic and it would cost noting. This is a beautiful park. The fact you don’t have to pay to get in was amazing.

Had visited Peasholm Park on couple of occasions during our stay in this region and were astonished with its diverse flora. It's amazing to see so many different trees in one place in such interesting setting. Peasholm Island, which seems to be a central part of this park, is designed to reflect Chinese Willow Pattern and can be accessed through one bridge. This part is open to public between 09:00 and 20:00, while rest of the park can be accessed at anytime.

There is limited access prior and during Warfare Battles, which take place just in the middle of water reservoir in Peasholm Park. We did not manage on time to see this performance but it appears to be very popular and highly rated event. It's £12.50 for two adults and one child and tickets can be purchased at entrance to the park and only paid by cash.

There are boats and dragon shaped pedalos to hire with half hour time slots available at the price of around £8 for 3 people. This allows enough time to get at least twice around the Peasholm Island. Within this park's premises there are also: mini golf course, Glen Tree Walk, cafe and public toilets. We could have easily spent all day in this park and would not get bored at all. Amount of seagulls and state of public toilets would only be only concerns to bear in mind when visiting Peasholm Park.

We were on holiday in Yorkshire and across peasholm park when in scarborough. The kids loved the battleship reenactment (£12 for a family ticket I believe) we also had a go on the dragon pedalos (£8 for 30 mins).
The park itself has a lovely feel about it, japanese garden theme and is tranquil.
There are other things to do there also which we did not try.
There parking nearby as well as the mini railway. It all comes under North Bay area.

We have been coming here for years.
It’s lovely to walk round lots of wildlife then you can hire a dragon peddle boat or rowing boats to go round the big pond which the kids loved when they were young. We decided to watch the performance with war ships it was £4.50 a adult. Once paid you can enter the park at 2 pm it’s shut for an hour beforehand. The show was ok with the boats and planes the kids were getting involved which was lovely to see. When paying you get told it gets noisy especially at the end with fireworks yet lots of people had dogs and very small children and babies. So throughout the show a few fireworks were going off which made the dogs going mad barking and kids screaming and crying and this was fairly early on. The end come with the fireworks and you couldn’t here what was going on because of the dogs. Overall it was quite entertaining bad points.. the toilets were very smelly toilet roll just all over and they were very old no door lock and inside the cubicle no hook on the door to hang your bag and I definitely didn’t want to put it on the dirty floor. On the outside of the doors had a picture on probably to hide all the graffiti as it was everywhere. When I got out and sat down 2 cleaners turned up and started emptying the bins around everyone very unpleasant and definitely put us off buying any food. The park around the café and seating area and toilets were shut for anyone at least an hour and the two cleaner’s that turned up could have easily cleaned all these areas before we was allowed entry. Don’t know what they were doing while it was shut but it was definitely not cleaning the main areas. Really let it down as everyone was saying the same. The ending was great but all the dogs were going mad.
Leave your dogs at home if they don’t like big bangs it’s not fair on them same with very young children they didn’t know what was going on.

Great park with lots to see for free. Dragon pedalo rides round the lake looked fun (£3ish per person). Cafe looked very reasonably priced. Very clean though some parts looking a bit tired (the pagoda and oriental garden).

What a fabulous park!
Brilliant facilities, all beautifully clean, very well maintained throughout, friendly staff and great value for money.
In short, we couldn't fault it!
Travelled to the park from the Sea Life Centre on the little train which cost about £10 for the 3 of us, then my son did water zorbing on the lake for £5, walked through and got a really clean dragon pedalo for £6.20 for 30 minutes. Lovely time pedalling round the lake.
Toilets were really clean, especially considering the amount of people in the park that day, as it was really sunny.
Finished our visit off by grabbing fish and chips from the shop just outside the entranced heading back to the pitch and putt benches to eat them.
Well done Scarborough Council a real feather in your cap!

When does the summer season start in Scarboro’ by the sea?
We were here in May this year and everything seemed shut!
To Peaseholm Park we drove along but parking is not free,
No boating was available, the island inaccessible, not even pitch-n-put.

So off we set up to the Glen in search of treasured trees,
On winding paths beside a stream up to the fecund lily pond.
Armed only with a photograph, to map out what we’d see,
No numbered posts to give a clue to branch or leaf or frond.

When nature called, as oft it must, when furthest from a loo,
We beat a path to WC, but they really were unclean.
In the lake are staged mock battles and there’s a bandstand too,
Whilst in the sun we gazed upon the Willow Pattern’d scene.

We loved it here. The Edwardian Park is beautiful. There is parking opposite for a reasonable price all day (tickets are transferrable to other Scarborough car parks too). There are toilets at the car park.

The park itself is beautiful. We opted to take a Pedalo around the lake which was about £6 for three of us. You get 30 mins which was enough for two laps and it was a beautiful way to see the park.

The cafe snacks were hot and reasonably priced.

We also did the mini golf which was deceptively large. 18 holes over two sites divided by a hedge which was just £4 each. Clubs, balls, tees and scorecards provided.

A lovely visit.

Lovely park, great walks, lots to explore.

Cafe has lots of options.

Recommend going on the pedalo boats, reasonable price and lovely to go around the water taking in the scenery from a different view.

Pram friendly, there’s some areas with steps but you don’t have to go through those bits.

What a beautiful place to visit. We went in daytime and evening (darkness). Both equally the same experience, we walked effortlessly the whole park in 1 hour at a slow stroll. the central island is worth the the little extra trek, it's all easy going and beautiful scenery of Oriental themes. The evening is well lit with beautiful lights around the lake, stick to the lakelights and we felt Safe at 8pm ( late September). This is the best park we have visited.
