Roundhay Park in snow, looking towards Lakeside Cafe (Roundhay)
Colour imageJanuary 2010. A snowy scene in Roundhay Park looking across Waterloo Lake towards the Lakeside Café, from the site of the former waterfall. Life-saving equipment can be seen at the lakeside. Safety concerns were a pressing issue around the lake in the late nineteenth century, following several boating accidents. This led the Town Council to take a more proactive approach to health and safety in the Park from the 1880s, which including the fitting of the life-saving apparatus around the lake.
