Things to Do

Local War Memorial

There is a local war memorial from the period of King George the 6th. The names on the memorial are of soldiers deceased from the First and Second World War.

Sit on the Dedication Benches

The dedication benches are embedded into the stone walling around the park, facing inwards towards the flower garden. These benches encourage you to take a moment out and reflect. It’s a perfect spot for practicing a piece of mindfulness.

Flower Garden

In the centre of the green space is a flower garden that contains various types of trees and plants, including shrubs and raised beds. The most eye catching are the poppies that grow between June and September.

In 2023 the garden is going through a local consultation process. Funding will be used to make the space more accessible and friendly to the local community.


The nearest public toilet is a 5-minute walk to the Cricketers Arms pub.

There are rubbish bins in and around the garden.

Food and Drink

Key Fisheries is just down the road on York Road. Get yourself a chippy tea to have in the garden.


Park for free next door in the Seacroft Village Hall car park, LS14 6JS (Google Map Directions).


The gardens are accessible only by a set of steps down into the garden – this makes it inaccessible to a wheelchair user.
