Grove Hill Park used to be the ground of Otley Mills Cricket Club. Decades ago the landscape significantly changed when the Bradford Road by-pass laid concrete over a big part of the clubs ground. Since then the green space has adapted to be the park you see today.


Dog waste and rubbish bins are available in Grove Hill park.

Food and Drink


Grove Park by the river Wharfe is a proper picnicking spot. Once you’ve dined on your basket of goodies you can take the leftovers to feed the ducks on the river.

Food & Drink

Along the front of the river Wharfe are a couple of quality restaurants a stones throw from Grove Hill Park.

The Mill Bar & Bistro – the changing seasons are a big influence on what’s cooked up at this bistro. Ingredients are picked locally and the dishes are seasonally themed.

The Fleece – our pick for a super family and dog friendly pub for those days everybody comes to the park. The double log burner and views down to the river are big pluses and we’ve not even mentioned the drinks and grub.
