A beautifully kept park with a lovely pond with ducks and geese and a children's play area. This place is so peaceful and serene and wonderfully looked after. We walked through on a Sunday morning and there was a park keeper cleaning round the pond, very impressive.

For families with kids, Rowntree Park is great because it has two big playgrounds and lots of equipment for kids of different age groups to keep them occupied for hours. The grounds is quite big and the Reading cafe is a nice place for a cup of tea. But there is so much goose poo all around the park and... More

One of the many places you can go for free for a walk on the riverside, general recreation or a picnic with friends and family. Parking is free, plentiful and close by.
