Becketts Park is a popular and attractive residential area, constructed between the 1930's and 1950's after the grounds of Kirkstall Grange were sold for housing, education and parkland use.
THE FRIENDS OF BECKETT PARK
The Friends were formed in the autumn of 2014 to work with the Council’s Parks and Countryside officers in improving and managing the park.
A Community Park
Beckett Park is a much-loved community park used by the residents of Headingley, Weetwood and Kirkstall. As well as the beautiful open parkland, it has tennis courts, a children’s playground, a small skate park, and outdoor fitness equipment. It is popular for informal ball games and the tarmac paths are designated cycleways. The park has attractive views over the Kirkstall Valley.
Originally the park was part of the grounds of Kirkstall Grange (now part of Leeds Beckett University) and it still retains its historic parkland character.
