Thornes Park is Wakefield's main open space, less than a mile from the city centre.
The park offers 60 hectares of open space to explore and enjoy including a 2 mile circular path that follows the boundary of the park - and if this is not challenging enough there are several exercise stations on the route. There is a mound in the centre of the park which was once the site of a motte and bailey castle and now provides spectacular views of Wakefield.
