Visit to Roundhay Park, Leeds, LS8 2HH. Meet 11 am at Tropical World, Prince’s Avenue by the cafe.
Roundhay Park now covers over 700 acres of parkland, lakes and woodland and is one of the largest urban parks in the world. The Park has a scented for the blind, National Plant Collections, Canal Gardens, the Monet and Alhambra Gardens, plus Tropical World (also known as Butterfly Gardens and Butterfly World) which attracts visitors all year round. Newly opened in 2005 is the Friends Garden, located alongside Canal Gardens and the Rainbow Garden. In the 21st century, following extensive renovations to the park a new area of award winning ‘Chelsea Gardens’ has been created where gardens created for the Chelsea Show have been rebuilt for all to enjoy in the ‘Speciality Gardens’ area just off Mansion Lane.
The simplest way to get there is A65 to the outskirts of Leeds, turn left (east) on the Ring Road (A6120) and follow the signs to the park. There are several car parks in and around the park, also plenty of street parking.
