HOMEPAGE York Scenes37a. Rowntree Park, York

City of YORK SCENES

 York Area Index 

Rowntree Park is a short walk from the city centre, situated on Terry Avenue by the River Ouse. Rowntree Park, York is only short walk from the city centre, on the banks of the River Ouse. Rowntree Park, York is an inspiring 30-acre park has undergone a 1.8million refurbishment, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, restoring it to its original splendour. The park was a gift to the City of York by Messrs Rowntree & Co. in 1921 and is a memorial to the Cocoa Works staff who fell and suffered during World War 1. A set of listed gates off Terry Avenue were added to the park in memory of those who fell in the World War II. Bronze plaques mark both occasions within the centrally located Lych Gate. Rowntree Park has been awarded a Green Flag Award each year since 2004. Sites with Green Flag Awards are considered to be the best in the country.

My initial photographs were all taken on rather wintery snowy day!


Rowntree Park, York has many facilities: woodland walk and tree trails, ornamental lake with ducks and geese, half of the lake available for use by model boats, 6 tennis courts
skate park, basketball court, Rowntree Park Reading Cafe, toilets, war memorial, well equipped children's play area, dogs on lead are welcome (please pick up your dog waste!).
