The Harrogate district has an abundance of green space. A wide variety of parks, gardens and open spaces offer landscaped areas, floral beds, nature trails or green open space for relaxation or play. Our parks also offer a range of events and activities, including Knaresborough Bed Race which starts from Conyngham Hall, Remembrance Sunday Parades, The Big Picnic and the ever-popular annual Bonfire on The Stray in November. All the council managed parks within the district are freely accessible all year round.
Improvements for Valley Gardens Tennis Courts to include netball and basketball - tell us what you think!
It has been proposed that external funding is applied for to improve the tennis courts in Valley Gardens. This funding would result in improved fencing on all four tennis courts whilst also providing suitable line marking and equipment for basketball and netball facilities. We are seeking public opinion about these proposals and would appreciate your views. Please complete this online survey no later than 28th February 2015.
