Within fifteen minutes on foot (but in another direction) you can enjoy one of the most beautiful and impressive parks in Yorkshire: ‘Roundhay Park’. It has two enormous lakes with beautiful swans, geese and ducks. If you enjoy running/jogging there are a number of running tracks around the lakes and throughout the enormous park. This is extremely popular and attracts a lot of families throughout the year. There are three restaurants within the park, one of which overlooks the lake. Opposite the park there is Tropical World which is a mini tropical Zoo.
