History

The Park Square was part of a fashionable West End housing development, called the Park Estates which was developed at the end of the eighteenth century. It was meant to be for the more wealthy residents of Leeds. Because the aim was to give it a sense of prestige, rather than calling it a ‘street’, the area used names such as ‘Row’, ‘Parade’, ‘Place’ and ‘Square’.

The area quickly gave way to businesses, and Park Square has since been home to Leeds’ financial and legal district. By 1878, the commercial nature of the area was sealed when the ready-made mass production tailor, Sir John Barran, financed the building of his warehouse on the south side of the square named St Paul’s House.

 

Amenities

The park is surrounded by benches and bins. No toilets on site, but the area is surrounded by bars – many options if you are caught short!
