Parks for children and young people

Parks and other green spaces are great places for children and young people to play, hang out with friends, get exercise and learn about the world around them.

Play Areas

There are over 250 public play areas in Leeds including playgrounds, ball parks, skateboard parks and teen zone. To find playgrounds in your area, check out the playground maps in the Documents section of this page.
