Green fields that are perfect for playing and walking.

Red Hall Playing Field

Red Hall Playing Fields is a fantastic green space for walking and playing. In recent years this gem of an area has been impeded by a neighbouring housing development and bypass road development. Despite this, the fields still retains most of its charm as a great place to go with the family.

Shadwell is a quaint village in north-east Leeds. The area is 6-miles from Leeds city centre. It sits in the leafy green Harewood ward of the metropolitan borough.

Things to Do


The green fields make for a lovely circular walk on your own, with the family or the dog.


A open green space lends itself for lots of different games like flying a kite or kicking a ball around. It’s big enough to accommodate a football match.

With a clear 360 degree view you will be able to take the children and allow them to run some steam off.


On a nice day you could find a spot on one of the trees lining the edge of the field and unpack a delicious picnic.

Over a third of the original Red Hall Playing Fields has been lost to a bypass and housing development to the north and west of the playing fields.

The green space that remains is classed as ‘greenbelt’ and therefore is protected from further development. This means that future generations can enjoy what is left of the playing fields.


The nearest toilet is a short walk away at The Wellington.

There are rubbish bins dotted around the playing fields.

Food and Drink

Just north of the fields across the A58 is the Ego at the Wellington. A restaurant that serves up some freshly cooked Mediterranean dishes, and of course some local ales and classic cocktails.


Park for free south of the playing fields on the residential Rosebank Close, LS17 8NA (Google Map Directions)


There are well-trodden trails around the fields that get very mud after heavy rain. As a result Red Hall Playing Fields can be unsuitable to a wheelchair or pushchair user, depending on the weather.
