Springhead Park, Rothwell, Leeds

Sundays at home always ends up with the small people going stir crazy in this household, so this weekend we decided to go out and clear the internal cobwebs.

Never mind that it was blowing a gale, we just made sure we were well wrapped up and knew that we wanted somewhere with plenty of places for them to jump and climb about.

With this in mind, we decided to go to Springhead Park, Rothwell, on the outskirts of Leeds.

The Dad had seen it when driving past one day, so as it was somewhere none of us had ever been, we decided to give it a try.

If the kids are driving you bonkers by climbing about in the house and wrestling with each other (or is that just mine?! 🙂 ) it’s a great place to go to for them to run about and let off steam.

There’s a play ground, with separate play areas for small and bigger children so all ages have somewhere they can play safely.

If you fancy playing a few games of tennis, there’s a great tennis court as well.

The grounds are lovely for a walk round too, and we enjoyed going for a walk over a bridge that had this little stream running underneath.

There’s also a great bird aviary which houses different species of birds, from cockatiels to the more exotic.

There’s a board next to the aviary with pictures and descriptions of all the different species, so you can have a go at spotting the different types.

If after all this you fancy something to eat, there’s also a great little café too.

We’ll definitely be back when the weather’s warmer, as it’d be a fantastic place for a picnic.
