The Alzheimers Society organises sponsored "memory walks" in various places, through which people with dementia, their carers and supporters can raise money for the charity. The 2015 walk in Leeds took place in Roundhay Park.

Roundhay Park, Leeds :: SE3337

Allegedly one of the largest city parks in Europe, Roundhay Park, covers an area of around 200 hectares (2 sq.km). That includes a golf course, two lakes and woodland, besides the grassed areas. The whole area is a Grade 2 scheduled park.

Originally a 14th century deer park, the area was used for quarries and mine workings by the late 18th century. the estate was bought by Thomas Nicholson, a wealthy banker, and his descendant William Nicholson sold it in 1871 to Leeds City Council, since when it has been a public park (apart from the golf course, which is private).
