Peasholm Park is a picturesque natural space in Scarborough, North Yorkshire and a perfect spot to visit with the whole family, four legged friends included.
Peasholm Park boasts a large lake which comes alive in the summer months and showcases just a small selection of the wonderful wildlife that calls Scarborough home, from the geese and ducks that take to the waters to squirrels scampering up and down the neighbouring canopy.
There are boats for hire and other activities to enjoy, including classic rowing, pedalos and dragon-headed vessels which are particularly popular. There is also a floating bandstand and free concerts to enjoy when the warmer weather arrives.
