The park is a credit to Leeds, it is a lovely area to take a walk, and the attached Nature Reserve is brilliant, ample parking and a very nice cafe, the toilets could do with a refurb though.

Whatever time of year you go Golden Acre has something to offer for young and old alike..from flowers and plants, a variety of birds and the friendliest squirrels I have ever known. It’s also beautifully kept with a lovely cafe.

A pleasant and well maintained park with good paths for a winter walk. Plenty to see and to get some fresh air on a cool day.

Just visited for a leisurely stroll. Nice cafe, nice walks and gardens. A lot of squirrels and birds too, of all kinds! Wouldn't recommend the toilets, however. They were vile. Held my wee in till I got home. Other than that, great time there. lol

Had a lovely walk around the park. Saw loads of squirrels and there were a lot of geese and ducks around the pond area. Will be heading back again, armed with a big bag of nuts and my camera!

Dogs can’t swim there as it’s a natural lake with ducks and swans nesting and with their young

I am not sure; I have seen little children riding bikes and scooters. But I'm not aware of cyclists being allowed to cycle through the park.
