Little Miss Yorkshire
Aireville Park (BD23 1QR), in Skipton, is the best in the town by a long way. The park is at the heart of the town and you can easily spend a few hours here.
There is a variety of short walks that you can do around the park. Our favourite, though, is a 2.5km loop around the outskirts of the park and back through Gawflat Meadow. There’s plenty to keep little ones entertained, so it never feels like you’re walking much. You walk through a variety of terrain: woodland, wide open spaces, a wildflower meadow and alongside the canal.
The main paths through the park are accessible, as well as the towpath that connects Aireville Park to the town centre. When you venture off these paths, you’ll discover a whole lot more from this park, including a tree top adventure, foot golf and picture-perfect picnic spots!
The main paths are ideal for little ones learning to ride their bikes, before they progress to the brilliant pump track to improve their confidence. The main event though is the playground. The wooden playground equipment was built in the last few years and there is so much to do for all ages. Little ones will love the sand pit, musical instruments and the obstacle course, complete with tunnel. For the older ones, there are climbing beams, a zip line, a rock-climbing wall and much more.
