Leeds’s Hidden Spaces – Pudsey Park

Join us as we discover hidden green spaces in our blog series

We're in Leeds this month for our hidden green space, in a popular park to the west of the city centre

By Mercy Okusun

At Move the Masses HQ we’re always keen to find new green spaces to explore. This spot was visited, photographed and written about by our brilliant volunteer blogger Mercy.

This is the eighteenth blog in our series – check out the others here. Don’t forget to let us know if you visit anywhere new as a result – we always appreciate comments and photos! Likewise, if you have anywhere you think others should know about, please get in touch and we’ll feature it soon: hello@movethemasses.org.uk  

Happy exploring!
