Things to Do

Friends of Hall Park

The Friends of Hall Park group are a bunch of folk dedicated to supporting and enhancing the maintenance of the park green space. The group support community initiatives that emerge through the local networks, like the recent installation of a ‘natter bench’ to tackle isolation. For more information head to Leeds City Council ‘friends of’ page.


If you like to keep it simple then a circular walk of the park perimetre clocks a good mile and a half. You can check this route out over at mypacer.

Walking is good, but walking and talking when you’ve got a lot going on in your life is even better. The importance of this has been recognised by NCT Leeds so much so that they put on regular walk and talk session for new mums. For the next NCT walk and talk session in Hall Park keep an eye out on the NCT Leeds website.


The park is home to the Horsforth Harriers running club. They host and lead an absolute beginners to an advanced running section and aim to cater for all  abilities. You can join the club every Tuesday night from 7pm in the park at the cricket pavilion.


On those sunny blue sky days nothing beats settling down on the grass with an ice cream to drift in and out of watching the small drama of a cricket match. The park is home of the Horsforth Hall Park Cricket Club – a community based cricket club that prioritise hosting family friendly events. It’s not a stuffy membership at this club! For their latest events and details of joining the cricket club check out their Facebook page.

Bowling Green

In the spring and summer months it’s a perfect opportunity to get involved in the bowls group that use the crown green pitch in the park. People are invited to sign up and play at their leisure. Or if you want to compete then you can join a singles and pairs league with the club. For more information contact Horsforth Hall Park Bowling Club.

Trim Trail

This trim trail has been installed for park visitors to direct their own exercise routine. Dotted all over the park this trim trail will get you moving in all directions, while working your core fitness. You can use high bars, parallel bars and benches amongst other workout stations to train the whole body.

Trailblazer Fitness

The wide open expanse of Hall Park is the perfect surroundings for a group fitness session. Trailblazer Fitness make the most of the space here to host different group fitness formats. Meet them by the bandstand every Wednesday for a 6:30pm start. It’s a £5 a pop but well worth it. All the info can be found over on the Trailblazer Fitness website.

Skate Park

A recent addition to the park has been the heavy duty and highly professional skate park. Located just behind the cricket club pavilion it offers budding young skaters the chance to exercise their skills on a scooter, BMX or skateboard. As one rider observed:  “it’s incredibly fun and a challenging skatepark that has a little bit of everything.” – one you won’t get bored of anytime soon.


One of the most inclusive features of this wonderful park is how the playground has been improved to allow both disabled and abled bodied children to play together. The outdoor play area includes a brilliant sandpit area and climbing structure call the ‘spiders web’. What’s more the play space is clean and organised in a way that your child will feel safe and contained under your supervision.

Japanese Garden

Over at the northern end of Hall Park is the Japanese Garden. Walking through this garden is like being transported to somewhere new. A large pond, with colourful koi carp splashing about, is the centre piece of this little piece of Eden. You’ll walk across the pond over a beautiful red arched bridge. Take a seat on the red wooden bench and appreciate the plants – camellias, acers, conifers and lots more. It’s a blissful escape.
