Rowntree Park

York’s Rowntree Park is an absolute gem. It is public green space which was gifted to the city of York by Rowntree (the chocolate company) in 1921 in memory of employees of the company who died during the war. It’s now a huge park with children’s playgrounds, bowling and putting green, skate park, tennis courts, library/cafe, lakes, ducks and geese, gardens, sculptures and a woodland walk. I love it.
