Things to Do

Dog Walking

East End Park comes with acres and acres of grass fields. A perfect place to let the dog off the leash without losing sight.


City runners Run Leeds have mapped a 1k training loop of East End Park that not only gets you moving but also gives you a tour of the park. Check out the full route over at Run Leeds.


The play area is bright and fun. It’s got all you would expect from a playground including swings, slides and climbing frames. There’s even a bike track bolted onto the playground area for the little ones to practice their riding.

Bowling Green

In between the tennis courts and children’s play area is the Crown Green bowling green. The club love to welcome new members whether your competitive or bowling for the fun of it. Message the club to find out more via their Facebook page.


East End Park comes with three quality tennis courts that you can access for free.

Do I need to book a tennis court?

It’s free to use the tennis court but you will need to book a court space on the LTA clubspark website.

Table Tennis

Next to the tennis courts is a Ping table tennis table. Just bring a pair of bats and a ball and get rallying.


There is one full sized adult football pitch with fixed goal posts. No amateur team uses this pitch.


There is a concrete court suitable for basketball and football located at the fringe of the park next to East Park Parade.


A piece of hilly woodland that is an escape from the open expanse of the park. The hill along will raise your heart rate. This spot is a getaway if you want some quiet space away from other park users.


East End Park has rose beds that will delight park visitors in summer with an array of colours.

Bonfire Night

The annual bonfire event in the park draws crowds in their thousands is one of six official council led events that happen across the city. Traditionally the bonfire is lit first and the fireworks follow.

Fun Fair

Every July the park welcomes a travelling fun fair. As you can expect it’s all about the rides and the candy floss! Tip – Thursday is usually the deal night with cheaper entry.


East End Park came from private ownership. At the beginning of the 20th century it was the grounds of the now destroyed Osmondthorpe Hall, levelled by a fire in 1924. Since then Leeds City Council have owned and maintained the green space.


Dog waste bins and rubbish bins are placed throughout the park. The nearest public toilet can be found on York Road.

Bring a picnic to enjoy in the open green space or in the woodland. There are picnic benches over by the playground area.

If you’re prepared to travel a little further afield into Harehills then check out Abyssinia which comes with a meaty and veggie Ethiopian themed menus.
