Armley Park / Gotts Park, Leeds :: Shared Description

A large open area among the otherwise densely built up area to the west of Armley, on the top of the scarp slope of Airedale. The western end is shown as Gotts (or Gott's) Park on maps, and the more formal gardens at the eastern end as Armley Park, but these names seem to be used interchangeably in local usage.

Between them is a golf course, formerly run by Leeds City Council but now a private operation, which uses the grade 2 listed Mansion as its clubhouse. In the middle is Redcote Lane that runs down to the River Aire and Leeds-Liverpool Canal.
