Things to Do

Dog Walking

Farsley Recreation Ground is made for a good dog walk. With lots of open green spaces, particularly behind the park, you can let the pooch run free without a worry.

Playground

The children’s play area is enclosed and big with lots of installations to enjoy. Slides, swings, climbing frames and what we like to call bouncers and spinners – those dizzy games that get the belly dropping!

Ball Games

With so much open green space for people to use we recommend you bring some  games to play with your friends or family. Especially the ones that don’t need much equipment like football and frisbee. If you’ve got lots of hands you could bring the cricket set!

Cycling

The quarter of a mile flat pathed loop around the recreation ground is a perfect place for the little ones to practice riding the cycle or scooter. Use the four sides as a visual target to set challenges like supporting them to ride unaided for the first time.

History

The surrounding area around Farsley Recreation Ground was a hotbed during the industrial revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries. Farsley was at the centre for wool processing with numerous mills rising up. Why not visit and check out the work that is being done to bring back Sunny Bank Mills!

Amenities

The nearest toilet is a walk south on Calverley Lane into Farsley high street.

Food and Drink

Picnic

At the top end of the park you can find a lovely spot drinking in the views over Farsley. This is a great place to have a picnic.

Food & Drink

Further down the road into Farsley are a couple of cracking independents where you can grab a drink or a bite to eat. Amity Brew are experimenting with new beer flavours and have a little drinking hall ready for you to enjoy on a weekend. For a bit of food we recommend you head to The Fleece at Farsley – a pub that’s at the heart of the community and comes packing with a great value pub grub menu.
