Living so close to Leeds means everything you need is a short journey away, but there’s also plenty to do closer to home.
"I’ve moved from a smaller village where there’s not much to do, so it’s fantastic to live so much closer to the centre. I’d describe Leeds as a vibrant and busy city with something for everyone." - Kate, Ambition resident
Said to be one of the largest parks in Europe with more than 700 acres of woodland, lakes and gardens to explore, the nearest entrance to Roundhay Park is 0.7 miles from Ambition – around a 15-minute walk. There’s a lakeside cafe and boating jetty, as well as a bowling green and children’s play area.
"We are within walking distance of the beautiful Roundhay park, as well as the park and green area just behind our development, where we walk our puppy every morning." - Kate, Ambition resident
Tropical World, 3.3 miles away at the top end of Roundhay Park, is a great day out for all the family with indoor tropical gardens, a butterfly house, exotic birds, meerkats and even crocodiles.
Primrose Valley Park is 3.7 miles from Ambition. With picnic benches, plenty of green and a great view over the surrounding area, the park also has tennis courts available for use. The Wyke Beck Way cycle route, which runs from Roundhay Park to Temple Newsam, passes through the park.
