“An excellent walk.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

This park is massive and is a great walk. I only come here to take my dogs for a walk and there is plenty of dog bins unlike other parks. The park and is well kept and there is a nice little cafe to grab a drink. There is paths around the park but these are more towards the middle of the park where the 'pond' is. All together a nice walk.

“Best Park in Leeds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

I'm fortunate enough to have Golden Acre Park on my door step. It's a brilliant park, beautifully kept. There is a nice picnic area, plenty of parking, bird hides, gorgeous gardens and a reasonably priced cafe.

It's a nice day out with kids to feed the ducks, play on the big fields and grab a bite to eat.

Great location from the city. Can get very busy at the weekend and not always enough parking but nice fresh air and passes a few hours

“varied walk in country surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Varied walking and distance - you choose. Lakeside, forest and hills. Short or long. Good access and not far out of Leeds.

“Squirrel heaven !!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Went here for the first time yesterday, Sun 6th July, with my husband & 10 yr old son. Had a lovely walk round the park with our son on his scooter, it's very pretty & well kept with mostly proper paths & lots of areas of different planting & a lake to walk round with a duck feeding area. The unexpected highlight for me ( a big squirrel fan !) was a clearing with a tree stump on which someone had left feed & nuts for the squirrels, we were entranced watching at least 10 squirrels playing & running about, they came really close to us, it made my day ! There's a café in the park but we didn't try it & a kiosk behind it where you could buy ice creams & drinks etc. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is there's no playground. Otherwise a beautiful spot to stroll round & free parking across the road too, well done Leeds council ! We will definitely come again.
