Weeping willow by the Upper Lake, Roundhay Park
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).
