There are a wide range of sporting activities to try during your visit including; tennis, crazy golf, table tennis, disc golf, pitch and putt as well as a skatepark. For music lovers, band concerts take place on Sunday afternoons throughout the summer.

Very pleasant park environment, very good children’s park. We walked all the way through to the RHS gardens,only about a 20 min walk. Nice way to spend a couple of hours if the weather is fine.

Beautiful setting, for old young, disabled, children and blind,due to spectacular flowers and flora. Historical pavilions are a true reminder of the past, present and future. They are something to be seen and appreciated by all.

I’ve lived in Harrogate for a long time and I always love going to the valley gardens. It is a well kept small park/ gardens with a mini golf area too. Well with a visit!

Fantastic gardens with beautiful flowers. The ice cream looked amazing from the shop in the park. The kids play area was massive and looked better than places we had been to before. There is a little crazy golf area, table tennis and tennis courts. Fab...More

Albeit we saw this magnificent monument to the towns heritage in early spring, it was still colourful and more than worthy of a visit. Follow the boggy trail and stop to learn of the significance of the various springs which made the spa town. Enjoy...More

There are 3 main paths through the gardens from the main entrance, the bottom path is the flattest but there is a gentle incline towards the play area.
