We went out for a play & for Nola to ride her birthday scooter today. The park was empty because the weather was atrocious but in between the rain there was blue sky. Feel better for fresh air & a walk by the river. #dayoutwiththekids #rowntreespark #riverwalk #rainraingoaway #learningtoscooter #proudmummy #freshairandfreedom
Autumn colours have arrived and I love them! How magical to think that this is probably the first Autumn this little one has kicked in the Autumn leaves!! #autumnishere #autumncolours #dearestviewfinder #magicalmoments #toddlersofinstagram #pixelkids #rowntreespark #yorkuk #yorkshire
This totem pole is in Rowntrees Park on the bank of the River Ouse in York. There’s a lovely cafe, a great playground for kids as well as tennis courts and a skateboard park. . . . . #yorkishome #visityork #visityorkshire #yorkshire #yorkislovely #godsowncountry #bestplacetolive #york #sunflower #yorkinbloom #rowntreespark
This time last week I met these lovely people 😁 look how happy I am 😛 #frenchieoftheday #frenchiefriends #frenchiesofinstagram #rowntreespark
We can’t deny that after a long glorious summer, autumn is now drawing in. I was handed this leave in the park by an 8 year old who described it as the ‘most beautiful leaf ever’. Autumn is amazing in the park, we can’t wait! The gardening volunteer team meet today 9.30- 11.30 new people always welcome. Meet under the cafe and then for a lovely drink in the @rpreadingcafe afterwards. 🍁 🍂 🍁 . . . #rowntreepark #loveyork #yorkpark #yorkparksandrec #ourbackyard #yorkuk #everythingyork #autumn #autumncolours #gardening #gardeningvolunteers #friendsofparks #we ❤️ourpark #supportgreenspaces #rowntreespark #thingstodoinyork #daysoutinyorkshire

This little frog popped up to say ‘hi’ to the volunteer gardeners on a Tuesday! Thank you to all our gardeners who give up their time to help maintain the park. The council have just done their annual hedge cutting so the park is looking neater in places. Gone are the days of 12 employed gardeners, today we have none - just a small team of council workers who work across all the parks and open spaces in York. The council are only now responsible for grass cutting, hedges, tree felling, rubbish and the gates. Therefore we really appreciate volunteers helping with everything else that needs to be done in the Park.

Yesterday I popped over to York Millennium Bridge to join @high_hoops_york and crew for a bit of circus fun. My skills are limited to the hoop, but there was lots of juggling, sticks and hoop isolation going on too! . . . #onlyinyork #York #rowntreespark #circus #hoopfest #hulahoop #fun #familyfriendly #juggling #fitness #livewell #laugh #friendship #freelancelife #business
The park is 97 today! To celebrate we had a picnic for Friends of Rowntree Park snd volunteers with cake! Some of you may remember the big party we used to have. Sadly for the last two years we haven’t run this as it was massive and became costly and required more volunteers than we have to run. We’d love to celebrate the park’s centenary in 2021 with a big party. We’d love to hear from anyone who’d be able to plan and organise such an event. If that’s you, get in touch! . . . #rowntreepark #volunteersneeded #rowntreespark #yorkscenes #loveourpark #rowntreeparkyork #parkparty #97birthday #parkbirthday #cityofyork #yorkuk #parksandrec #parksandrecreation #yorkparks #yorkuk #birthdayparty #rowntreeparkbirthdayparty #york #❤️ourpark
Lovely lilies! Personally I’m no expert on flowers, but we have an enthusiastic bunch of gardening volunteers who do all they can to try and make the long borders thrive. I love seeing visitors to the park admiring the hidden treasures. Whether you are an expert or gardening enthusiast, any gardening help or advice is much appreciated. We have no park keeper anymore so volunteers are trying to make the most of #ourbackyard get in touch gardening@Rowntreepark.org.uk 🌸 . . . #southbankyork #rowntreepark #bishyroad #rowntreespark #rowntreeparkyork #parksandrec #makeityork #yorkscenes #yorkuk #loveyork #lily #lilies #pinklily #volunteersneeded #gardeningyork #yorkparks #yorkparksandrec #loveourpark #❤️ourpark

What a weekend! Thank you to everyone who did the scarecrow trail and our awesome scarecrow makers! All proceeds go towards our volunteers work in maintaining and improving the park. Due to budget cuts the councils role in the park is greatly reduced and therefore The Friends of Rowntree Park try our best to continue to make the park awesome! You can support us for only £5 a year. For this you get 10% off in the cafe, monthly newsletters and discount/free entry to our events.
