Roundhay Park
Roundhay Park
There are so many different aspects to Roundhay Park. From woodlands to formal gardens, sports pitches to band stands, its diverse landscape is the background for a whole range of activities. But the park has changed over the years and so have the stories that people can tell about it. We're looking for contributions about the park to help bring alive its history and its place in the story of the city. Perhaps you remember things that no longer exist - the outdoor swimming pool, the Mary Gordon steamboat or Children's Day events. Maybe you had a first date in the park or held your wedding reception in the Mansion House. If you are a Friend of Roundhay and have been involved in its restoration we would love to hear from you too. What does Roundhay Park mean to you and what's your story?
