Banstead Park, children playing (Harehills) (6 comments)
Black & White image1983-84. View of children playing in the newly opened Banstead Park. Work commenced in the summer of 1983 on the former site of Banstead Grove and Harehills Terrace, streets of old red brick terraced housing. Leeds City Council had applied for a grant of £186,000 from the Inner City Programme to construct the park on the cleared site. It was to include two play areas with a range of modern play equipment, an area planted with wild flowers and grasses to attract bees and butterflies and a kickabout area.
