The walk around the lake is very leisurely, good for spotting planes taking off and landing. Lots of local wildlife to be looking out for. Whenever I have visited, I have always found a space easy enough regardless of the weather. The park has recently been updated and has some new features you wouldn't find at all parks.

We visit this place once a year to get the kids ready for our annual trip abroad. They love watching the aeroplanes coming in and out over the Tarn. It's a lovely walk and surprisingly peaceful.

Lovely walk for the dogs and kids alike. Also a good spot for watching the planes from Leeds/Bradford airport. Always worth a visit no matter what time of year it is plus Yeadon has some great little pubs serving great food.

The tarn is just big enough for a relaxing walk. Take in the ducks, swans and other bird life on the pond. Lots of dog walkers here. Lots of children. Play area to the side, usually an ice cream van parked up too. Have a walk around Yeadon town centre, 2 or 3 minutes around the corner, with pubs, cafes,... More

A great walk round the dam. Spent many hours there, over the years. I can even remember it having hire boats.

This is ideal if your kids want somewhere to practice on the BMX track then have a great easy walk around the tarn and onto the park. Always nice to have a run around there as well

this is simply a small lake which has a yachting club and model boat area, there is a small park for the children, a picnic area and well marked paths. There are no coffee shops or eateries, the nearest place for a coffee is the village of Yeadon, but you are well catered for there.
