The Future of Leeds Parks
9 Nov 2019 11am - 4:30pm
Public parks have been vital features of our cities since the nineteenth century, providing benefits to people, communities and the environment. But what are their prospects and what’s important to you about their future management? Find out about how Leeds parks have changed through time at this free exhibition based on research by the University of Leeds. Consider the challenges and opportunities facing parks today and have your say on a 10-year strategy for the future of Leeds parks and green spaces.
Throughout the day there will be activities for all, including:
- Free exhibition of Leeds parks
- Photographic archive of Leeds parks through time
- Pop-up park (for those wanting a taste of summer in November!)

Leeds City Museum is located on Millennium Square in Leeds city centre, located 0.4 miles from Leeds railway station and 0.6 miles from Leeds bus station. The museum is on a graduated slope, upward from the direction of the train station or downward if you are approaching from Woodhouse Lane.
There are two entrances to the museum. The main entrance is accessed via steps with a handrail, or by a ramp (the bottom of the ramp is on the left of the building as you face it). The main entrance has two double doors. The double doors on the left are automated with a press button, and they open outwards.
The event is hosted in Brodrick Hall, located on the first floor directly ahead of the main entrance. Talks and workshops will take place in the Denny Room, located on the lower ground floor and accessible by stairs or a lift. Alternatively, you can enter the museum at lower ground level through the café. The automated doors with a push button are located on the left, and they open outwards.
Further access information and a floor plan can be found on the Leeds City Museum website.
