At the end of the upper lake a waterfall meets the Gorge for a pleasant and peaceful walk along footpaths surrounded by natural woodland that is both refreshing and exhilarating.

Roundhay park is great to go with family espically when it's snowy like now. But when it's not it's just amazing views. Wonderful cafe and beautiful lakes. With paths that take you anywhere. When inwas ten my school went on a trip there. We looked round then we got sent down different paths (with friends) and we had to make our way back with out using the same path. If we did we didn't get an ice cream. So over all. A amazing day out

You will find a nice pleasant lake house café which overlooks Waterloo Lake and during our visit we saw people rowing in the ... Read the complete review

Great free day out for families with children of any age. Get the picnic packed, throw in a football, bread for the ducks and off you go. The play park is great for all ages, however, slightly limited for the 3 and under bracket.

So much space for ball games and picnics that you are spoilt for choice and even at its most busy you can always find a quiet spot. You can always head for the band stand and have your picnic there if the weather isn't looking great. The band stand's novelty value for very young children tends to work as .

well this is just one big park, with lots of different things to do to keep you entertained all day. I have been here many times with my children and they loved it.
