Lovely traditional garden.

Even though the crocuses are just emerging, we enjoyed a walk around Valley gardens. They are so well maintained, and a lovely space I Harrogate.

A very romantic place to enjoy a walk but also very family friendly. There is an excellent new miniature golf course, tennis courts, a playground, skate park, a cafe and a stunning display of beautiful flowers to enjoy. I love a good wander around with my dog Rosie on a weekend. #enjoyHarrogate

Valley Gardens is a very good place for a walk or let the kids run off some steam. It will depend on the time of year what you will get out of the place. From Spring onwards the flower beds are full of colour and create a vibrant place. There is a cafe and a great play area for kids... More

Lovely place for a walk, even in winter. Used it as a route to RHS Harlow Carr, worth the walk to visit alternative Betty's Cafe

A delightful place to walk around even on a cold February afternoon - there were so many people there and a lovely atmosphere. I imagine it's absolutely gorgeous in summer.
