Armley Park

Located on the south side of the Leeds Liverpool Canal, this community park contains woodlands on the valley slope, gardens, play area, skatepark, bowling greens, war memorial, seating and a network of paths. Spetacular views of the Aire valley can be had from the north side of the Park.
