Leeds’s green spaces need your help to be crowned the UK’s Best Park.
National charity Fields in Trust has launched a competition to find the best-loved park in the country, with the results determined by a public vote.
As well as maintained parks, children’s playgrounds, sports fields, nature reserves and recreation grounds are all eligible to win the title, as long as they are accessible to the public.
The campaign is backed for former England footballer Graeme le Saux, who spent time playing outdoors while growing up in Jersey.
Leeds City Council is responsible for 62 community parks, including flagship green spaces at Golden Acre, Roundhay, Pudsey, Middleton, Otley Chevin, Yeadon Tarn and the grounds of council-managed stately homes Kirkstall Abbey, Temple Newsam and Lotherton Hall.
Other local parks include Meanwood, Horsforth Hall, Potternewton, Armley, Banstead, Bramley, Calverley Victoria, Farnley Hall, Beckett’s, Burley, Chapel Allerton and Rothwell Country Park.
