There are some stunning dog walks in Leeds – the largest city in West Yorkshire in the North of England. Here are some of our favourites including Ardsley Reservior and Roundhay Park.
Near Wakefield, lies Ardsley Reservoir. This is a picturesque spot with stunning views across Emley Moor. Your dog will have plenty of space to run around and there are sandy beaches near the water. There are also woodlands and fields to explore and tire your dog out. This walk would be great for an energetic puppy. Also, it is not too muddy. If you are looking for a longer walk, you can cross the nearby fields towards St Michael’s Church, where it joins onto the Leeds Country Way. The distance you walk is entirely up to you.
Meanwood Park is a huge green space where you can walk your dog. It is a very pretty place and you should be able to see a range of wildlife on your walk. Your dog is allowed off the lead the whole duration of the walk so you do not have to worry about forbidden territory whilst walking. You can also follow the path along the Meanwood Beck. This walk continues onto The Hollies, where you can see a range of lovely plants. You can go further on to Golden Acre Park if you want a longer walk to tire your dog out.
Temple Newsam is a great dog walk. The grand house is surrounded by acres of green space, perfect for letting the dog loose and allowing them to roam free and explore. The only places where your dog needs to be on a lead is in the courtyard and gardens, other than that they are free to wonder. You can also explore the little temple monument and take a picture there. The views are amazing and definitely worth the walk.
Roundhay Park is one of the UK’s most popular garden tourist attractions. It is a hub of activity that will keep you and your dog entertained all day. The park covers over 700 acres of parkland, lakes, and woodland. Therefore, there is a lot to explore. Also, the park is one of the largest urban parks in the world.
It is located in the northeast of the city and has free parking, picnic areas, and lots of off-lead area for your dog.
Bramley Fall Woods
Bramley Fall Woods has 80 acres of beautiful woodland backing onto the Leeds Liverpool Canal. You can choose which walk you want to go on. There are longer walks and shorter walks available. You can either walk along the water or a trail through the trees and woodland.
The variety of paths means you can do a different route every time you visit. Therefore, this walk will never get boring.
