The Yorkshire Arboretum
A stunning landscape of parkland, lakes and ponds is the backdrop for a collection of more than 6,000 trees from around the world. Wander off to explore peaceful hidden glades and wildflower meadows, let the children go wild in the woodland playground and enjoy the very best in seasonal, home-cooked food in the café.  Get involved as a volunteer, participate in our busy events programme or even get married here. We look forward to welcoming you soon. Woodland Playground With lots of den building opportunities, balance beams, tree trunk bridges, log ladders and giant stepping stones, all created from the arboretum's own trees, there's plenty for children to discover and enjoy in our Woodland Playground.
