Things to Do

Dog Walking

The open space of the green is free to roam and explore because there is no sections or equipment that you would find in a typical park. This environment is perfect to take the dog and let them off the lead. Just be mindful of any children and young people playing ball games in the space.


There is a grass wicket maintained and played on by Crossgates Cricket Club.

Ball Games

The village green was traditionally created for the community to gather and play games. One of the most popular pursuits in the park on an average day is people playing any type of ball games. It might be fun, it might be competitive; this green space is perfect for games of football, rounders, rugby, or even a classic game of tag.

We Are Seacroft Festival

The yearly celebration of all things Seacroft, hosted by the We Are Seacroft network. Usually hosted in the summer months this festival brings the music,  food, circus arts, live radio, sports, giant puppets and loads more.

Summer-Winter Gala

A twice a year celebration that’s been happening for decades. The traditional gala way is a celebration of lots of things that piece together some of the foundational identities of Seacroft. Turn up and get involved in a tea tent, silly Olympics, fun fair, dog show, stalls, pace painting, arts and crafts, circus skills and plenty of live music!


In the 20th century, cricket matches used to be played on the village green with lots of the locals turning out to watch the match. Having a drink (usually a pint of beer) from the Cricketers Arm on the edge of the boundary.

The sense of togetherness was strong at this time. A donation box was regularly filled at the match, the money shared to support the local community. And if you speak to a local connected to this generation you’ll probably get a fond recollection of get togethers on the Seacroft Village Green.


The nearest toilet is on the edge of the village green at the Cricketers Arms pub.

Dog and rubbish waste bins are found on the village green.

There is plenty of bench seating around the village green.

Food and Drink

Key Fisheries on York Road serves up a really good fish and chip tea.


There is plenty of free parking at the Cricketers Arms, LS14 6JW (Google Map Directions)


Seacroft Village Green is fully accessible to wheelchair and pushchair users.
