Designed in the Georgian era, Leeds Park Square is tucked away in the city's financial district and offers a green oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Its grassy lawns and benches make it an ideal place to enjoy a picnic lunch or rest your feet after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping. Surrounded by Georgian buildings and offices, the park is a popular place for professionals looking for a quiet spot to enjoy the sunshine. In the summer months the lush grass and gentle breezes make it an ideal place to lie on the lawn and take a break from the city.
