Recreated railway track, Golden Acre Park
Recreated railway track, Golden Acre Park
Back in the 1930s there was a working narrow gauge railway in the park. Just a 60m length of track has been relaid to mark part of its length, including this station platform (which is a genuine relic). It is less overgrown than in 2009 SE2641 : Lakeside Station, Golden Acre Park.
Golden Acre Park, Adel, Leeds
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.
