“Great place”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I was born and brought up near to the (Moor) and all i can say is that what a fantastic place it used to be and still is today as i visit there maybe 5/6 times a year as i moved away from the area but not that far away so as not to still visit there.

Many...many shops around and near to the moor also including the (Hyde Park Pub which had always been a good watering hole and of course not forgetting the (Royal Park Pub)

I think a visit to the moor and surrounding area is now on the cards after typing this.

“good dog walking but avoid the students”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

is large but no fencing surround so a bit of a concern when wlking dogs - spent a lot of time on here when I was a Guide, but not sure it is safer.

“Nice big park with lots of people enjoying the weather”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

I walked through this park on Saturday and it was a lovely warm sunny day with plenty of people out some just relaxing, others playing sports some families and children, near many student areas and pleasant atmosphere for all.

“Memory Lane”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

Woodhouse Moor used to be the meeting place, when weather permitted, of many students who lived in flats and digs around the Hyde Park and Headingley areas. It borders the old university buildings. I would be surprised if this wasnt still a meeting place. Easier to walk to, say, than Roundhay which required bus or car to reach. Tennis courts and masses of sloping grass to relax on or study or even for a quick game of football.
In fact Woodhouse Moor is divided into two, that part near Hyde Park, which is the charming part and another section on the other side of the main Otley Road which tended to scrubland and provided the site for visiting fairs. During my visit in the summer the sun beat down on the moor and trees offered plenty of shade for those who wanted it. People still use the moor as a meeting place and for relaxing. The ghosts of students long gone haunted my gentle walk.
