Birds of prey, reptiles, tractors and hanging basket masterclasses will all be among the range of attractions on show as our parks and countryside service holds its annual open weekend.
This is the second year that we have organised this event that showcases the work of the team that looks after parks and green spaces in the city. It includes a wide range of activities that demonstrate the work of the service.
- Guided tours of the nursery
- Displays on forestry and natural habitat
- Seed sowing and hanging baskets masterclasses
- Information about allotments and the ‘In Bloom’ groups in Leeds.
- Birds of Prey from Lotherton Hall Bird Garden
- Reptiles from Tropical World at Roundhay Park
- New-born lambs and goats from Temple Newsam’s Home Farm.
There will be a football competition plus the chance for budding golfers to try their hand at putting.
For younger visitors there will be fairground rides on offer as well as the chance to explore and sit in the parks and countryside fleet of tractors.
Refreshment will be on sale and the nursery shop will be open selling bedding plants, perennials and edibles.
The open days are free and take place on Saturday and Sunday (11-12 May) from 9am-3pm each day at our Red Hall Nursery - just off Wetherby Road.
