Entrance to the Park

We enter the park through these magnificent gates on Prince's Avenue. The pair of Central wrought iron gates sport the Leeds Coat of Arms in the centre of each one.

Roundhay Park was acquired by Leeds Corporation in 1872, and was the cause of much controversy over the cost. It was formally opened in September of the same year by the Duke of Connaught on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Victoria.

The work ‘Roundhay’, comes from ‘Rund-haeg’, meaning round enclosure, or fenced preserve for deer, and Roundhay Park was once a great medieval hunting ground.
