History

Back in the day Hunslet Moor Park was originally an ornamental garden. This patch of multi-coloured paradise sat within an industrial district built on traction and steam engines.

The industrial past can be seen in the design of the buildings both in business and housing. For the latter there’s a big contrast between the red terrace housing and slick riverside flats built in recent times.

Amenities

There are numerous rubbish and dog waste bins on Hunslet Moor Park.

Food and Drink

Picnics

We recommend you bring a picnic to the park and settle down to some food and drink amongst the wildflowers.

If you want something a little more upmarket then head to Bison Steakhouse at the bottom end of the park on Dewsbury Road. These guys sizzle up Yorkshire reared steak and burgers from their own Bison farm.
