Spring Wood Park
View Full development
Just ten minutes’ stroll from the village centre, Spring Wood Park has a peaceful ambience that contrasts with its convenience. The A660 brings the centre of Leeds within 20 minutes’ drive, and bus services between Leeds and Ilkley stop beside the development. The area has a network of foot and cycle paths, while for travel further afield Spring Wood Park is just four miles from Leeds Bradford International Airport. Shops and services within a few yards of the development include an off-licence specialising in fine wines, an independent coffee shop, a family butcher, a delicatessen, and a convenience store. The village has a pharmacy, a bakery, a newsagent, a gift shop, food takeaways, hairdressers, and a historic pub and restaurant, the Fox and Hounds. There are also two farm shops within walking distance, and a wider choice, including a large Co-op with post office facilities, can be found in Adel, just two miles away.
Much of community life focuses on the Village Hall, which hosts a diversity of activities and events for all ages, from playgroups to art classes, yoga, theatre, and the annual Village Show. The hall is flanked by tennis and bowling clubs, both of which welcome new members, and there is a cricket club at the west end of the village and a rugby club just a few yards from Spring Wood Park. The well-equipped playground in the village is set in a delightful wooded park.
