Park · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
One of the largest city parks in all of Europe, Roundhay Park is a collection of woodland, lakes, and landscaped grounds. Bring a picnic in the good weather months, or hike through the woodland and enjoy the local plant and animal life. Inside the Canal Gardens are a group of greenhouses, each protecting plants from different climates. Enter Tropical World inside the Coronation House to discover one of the largest collections of tropical flora in the United Kingdom. Inside, butterflies and aquariums fill the rooms with color. On your way to the "Tropical World" entrance, you'll pass through a rose garden that was once a vegetable garden for the mansion. Be sure to check out Monet's Garden, where you may recognize the garden path at Giverny from his 1902 painting of the same name.

  • Wonderfully maintained park and lakes to walk or run round with good quality paths for buggy, scooter, bike or wheelchair. Lovely little playground for younger children, often with an ice cream van parked outside. The cafe there is good too with clean toilets including baby changing facilities. Parking is free and there are plenty of disabled parking spaces. There is currently also a 'train' that drives around the park providing a fun ride for an extra charge.
  • I adore this park. Lovely big park with 2 playgrounds... one at the top for bigger kids and a newly refurbished one at the bottom for younger. A great walk around the lake (2.5km) and a wonderful place to run. Grass, woodland and water. Swans, ducks and geese to feed if you fancy. Plus it has a great coffee shop with wonderful views over the lake. The only downside is that the coffee shop is super expensive... but I still love going so 5 stars from me.
