I’ve visited Lister Park over many years and feel it is perhaps the best I’ve seen it, with sculptures, a great playground, well maintained gardens. The Mughal water gardens are a particular favourite of mine.

Beautifully kept park - glorious flowers and a fossillised tree! Acres of lawn, fountains, boating lake with hundreds of ducks. Had a yummy lunch at the cafe and a free wander round the art galley. It makes me feel relaxed and at peace.

So sorry for the delay. You can park around boundaries of the park. Or there is a pub you could use then walk over the the road to the back of the park. Again sorry for delay and I hope I helped. Pop into Saltaire village... More
