Attraction details
Owner description: Valley Gardens is a beautiful Park in Low Harrogate, perfect for a relaxed stroll or for a family day out. It is an English Heritage Grade II Listed Garden covering 17 acres of formal gardens, leisure activities and woodland. Historical buildings and the semi-covered Colonades sit nestled amongst a wide variety of shrub, flower and herbaceous beds. The adventure play area is immensely popular especially during the summer season when the paddling pool is a refreshing way to cool down. There are a wide range of sporting activities to try during your visit including; tennis, crazy golf, table tennis, disc golf, pitch and putt as well as a skatepark. For music lovers, band concerts take place on Sunday afternoons throughout the summer.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

For kids, parents and grandparents alike, The Valley Gardens is something Harrogate should always be proud of. Acres of grass and landscaped gardens that look outstanding at any time of year.

Great new play park for the kids too, at the right time of year you could happily spend a lovely quiet day here, armed with picnic and ice cream money, of course.

“A great place for a stroll!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

I love walking around these gardens particularly on a Sunday afternoon when they are crowded with families. The flower arrangements are wonderful. There is a fantastic adventure playground, tennis courts and crazy golf. There is also a small boating lake for radio controlled toy boats. All in all this is a lovely place to amble around right in the heart of beautiful Harrogate.
