Friends of Middleton Park
The Middleton Park Visitor Centre Cafe is open weekdays between 10:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. and is run by Leeds Learning Disability Service.
Not all the events listed below are organised by the Friends.
The City council Parks and Countryside Rangers organise events in Middleton park, as well as in other Parks etc around Leeds.
The Friends of Middleton Park are always in need of more willing hands. Please get in touch if you would like to help out in any way possible.
All Events will be in the Middleton Park Visitor Centre, unless stated otherwise.
Autumn and Winter...

Countryside Ranger Steve Joul will be leading his popular workshop on making Christmas decorations.
Space is limited so we will be controlling the number of people in the centre doing it - best come early to avoid disappointment.
- Festive Carol Singing with the Brownies - 3 p.m.
and Mary's Diary a short play.
- During the day we will be launching a consultation,
in conjunction with Leeds City Council, on the future of land that
was the Golf Course.
Hopefully there will be a large scale map with some ideas, just to show what may be possible. However we are assured nothing is decided, so you can have an input. In the new year there will be further community consultations.
Come down and join us for a fun Festive Sunday
