Things to Do

There’s a few things to do at Scott Hall Playing Fields. Check these out:

Dog Walking

Like it says in the name. It’s several flat playing fields cobbled together. Perfect territory to let the pooch run free off the leash.


Speaking of running. The perimetre of the playing fields is half a mile in full. What’s more you can use the four sides of the field to do some interval training where you vary up the speed.


There’s a full sized adult football pitch on the playing fields. It’s home of the North Leeds Leopards RLFC. They field a mixture of adult and junior teams and are always on the look out for volunteers to support the setup. To play or volunteer drop them a message on Facebook.


Scott Hall Playing Fields have multiple junior sized football pitches. With the goals fixed these are perfect for a group of young people to turn up and use. For under 16s it’s worth joining in with a North East Leeds junior session. They are a community club supporting over 350 children and young people. Find out more by heading to the NEL Facebook page.

Ball Games

The wide open grass fields make Scott Hall prime for playing lots of group ball games, like cricket. We’ve even seen people with a golf club hitting a ball around the ground into empty spaces. If you do the latter just be doubly careful where you hit the ball.

Scott Hall Road Funfair

Scott Hall Playing Fields is regularly the site for a touring funfair. The last one to stop off was Terry Atha’s fun fair back in July. For the next visit keep an eye out on Terry’s Facebook.

Breeze in the Park

Another touring event that comes to Scott Hall is the ‘Breeze in the Park’ summer event series courtesy of Leeds City Councils youth service. The event brings arts, food, inflatables and a fun fair for children and young people up to the age of 19-years. For the latest event information check the Breeze in the Park website.


Before Scott Hall was playing fields it was a farm. The farmhouse – on Scott Hall Street – still stands as a Grade II listed building. It sits in disrepair in poor condition waiting for some TLC.


Dog waste and rubbish bins available on the pathway curtailing the edge of the playing fields.

Food and Drink


On a sunny warm day the fields become a sun trap. Perfect conditions to unroll a blanket and have a picnic in-between some ball games.

Food & Drink

For some hot takeout look no further than the options on the Potternewton Lane and Scott Hall Road roundabout. El Bahja serve up tasty pizza and chicken with a vegan menu for those avoiding the meaty stuff. A few doors to the left is Drakes. A chippy that consistently wrap a decent fish supper – ideal to take back to the playing fields to eat alfresco.
