Eastern car park, Golden Acre Park
Eastern car park, Golden Acre Park
On the warm summer Sunday, the main car park off Otley Road was full and queueing. We just managed to find a space in the car part at the other end of the park, off Arthington Road. Unusually for a tourist attraction these days, parking is completely free.
Golden Acre Park, Adel, Leeds :: SE2641
Advertised as covering an area of 137 acres (rather than the one implied by the name), Golden Acre has been a public park owned by Leeds City Council since 1945, prior to which it was an unsuccessful commercial venture in the 1930s. Given how many visitors it now attracts, the Council could probably make a tidy sum charging a modest admission fee (or at least charging for parking, which surprisingly is free).

The attractions in the park include impressive floral displays, themed 'demonstration' gardens, a wildfowl lake with observation hut, cafe, and extensive paths in both wooded and open areas.
