The Village Green is bordered by Burley Road, Village Street, Cardigan Lane and Stanmore Hill. Used by locals residents – families, young professionals and students. Although small, it is a bustling place during the sunny days. Lots of picnics, dog walkers and people passing through Burley.

Things to Do

Burley Village Green is a great place to pass through when walking the dog. It is around the corner from Burley Park, and Hyde Park making it the perfect addition to a longer route.

There are several running groups that run through the Burley Kirkstall area, including the Kirkstall Harriers. If you are looking to get into social running these two are definitely worth looking into!

On sunny days this park is a great place to lay down a blanket and have a picnic. Not too far from Aldi, Asda and a small One Stop – no need for much of a plan for food. Get out and enjoy the day!

Burley has deep roots in history, with its earliest mention being in the Doomsday book. Much of the surrounding area was forest, stretching from the River Aire all the way to Headingley (Cardigan Fields to the Original Oak).

Burley Village Green was the original site of Burley Village before the area got cleared just after 1955. Back when Leeds was far smaller than it is now. The terrace houses we are so familiar with were built up around this time – and the original village was removed.

In March 2004 the Village Green won the ‘Community Project of the Year’ in the ‘Community and City Pride Awards’.


The only amenities that Burley Village Green has is bins dotted around the area. The closest toilets would be the Cardigan Arms pub, a 5 minute walk from the park.

Food and Drink

Being situated in Burley, and just around the corner from Kirkstall road, there are any number of places for food and drink.

The Cardigan Arms is a popular location for a quick pint and lunch – offering a relaxing atmosphere in a historic Victorian pub. There is Manjit’s Kitchen serving vegetarian Indian food and Viva Cuba with a selection of authentic Cuban tapas dishes.

POCO is a popular takeaway if you fancy picking up some tasty treats to take home after your visit.


There is no on-site parking, however there are many surrounding roads that permit on street parking.

We would recommend The Village Street, just off of Burley Road. Postcode LS4 2PH (Google Map Link).


There is one main path that weaves through the middle of the green, and on a dry day the grass should be accessible with wheelchairs and pushchairs. However be aware that it can get extremely boggy after rain.
