Tarnfield Park is located between High Street and the airport runway and is open all year round. It is extremely popular with people of all ages. The tarn is used for sailing and fishing. Mallard ducks, swans and a sizable population of Canada Geese can be found here and there.
Most footpaths are suitable for the majority of manual and electric wheelchair users. Younger visitors can enjoy the playground and BMX track.
For the more active visitor to the park the tarn, the main feature of the park, is used for various water sports activities and is the base for the Leeds Sailing and Activity Centre.
