The Friends of Roundhay Park (FoRP) is a charitable organisation formed in 1994 by local Leeds residents who decided to get involved with the Park, rather than just talk about it. They had the vision to create an organisation bringing together all lovers of the Park.

The Roundhay Park Floral Walk Leaflet is now available.

One of the attractive features of Roundhay Park are the magnificent floral displays in different areas of the Paark, which have contributed to success in the Britain in Bloom competitions and to Gold Medal winning exhibits at the Chelsea Flower Show.
This new leaflet produced by the Friends takes you on an easy stroll from the Princes Avenue car park, past most of the main floral displays ending up in the award winning Specialisst Gardens.
The trail is on tarmac and gravel paths so is suitable for both buggies and wheelchairs.
Copies of the leaflet are available free of charge at Tropical World reception and in the Mansion.
