Parkinson’s Park sits behind what used to be the Crompton Parkinson site on Netherfield Road: it can be approached via a number of entrances on Kelcliffe Lane, Greenshaw Terrace, Netherfield Crescent and Hillside Avenue. It was given to the people of Guiseley to use as a park by Frank and Albert Parkinson during the 1930’s: it has been in continuous use for walks, play, and events since that time. It is now owned by the developer Bellway Homes, who, along with Local Councillors and organizations like RHS and Groundwork, have supported the Friends of Parkinson’s Park CIC (FOPP) in their efforts to make this an attractive green space once again for community use. On these pages you can follow and comment on the progress that is made – we also need your stories of the park, as well as pictures, and comments on how you would like the park to devleop. We warmly welcome all contributions, or just sign up to follow us on this site or on Twitter (parkinsons_pk). If you use foursquare :: on your smartphone, check in and leave a tip for other visitors.
