How To Survive The Hottest Day of The Year In LS16

July 19th, 2016 · No Comments · Community News

The mercury is set to peak at 31•C today, as LS16 is bathed in a Mediterranean style heatwave.

Here are a few ideas for what to do in the gorgeous weather in our local area.

Beer Gardens!

The newly refurbished Lawnswood Arms has a wide selection of food and drink as well as somewhere for the kids to play.

In the heart of LS16 is the High Farm pub offering a selection of local and international ales in its iconic old farm house setting.

Or why not venture into Horsforth where the Old Ball pub has a large sun baked beer garden as well as buy one get one free pizzas.

A Bite To Eat!

The sun doesn’t have to be the only heat available today. The Cheerful Chili at the foot of Otley Chevin can add a little spice to your evening.

If you would rather dine al fresco with the nation that invented the term then a trip to Divino or Gusto may be where to enjoy an evening meal in LS16.

Keep Active!

If alcohol or food are not what your looking for but quite the opposite then perhaps a trip to Holt Park tennis courts may be for you. With three courts to choose from you can head down and recreate some Murray magic.

Alternatively take a trip to Cookridge Hall Driving Range and de-stress after work by hitting a few golf balls in the evening sun. A bucket of 50 balls will set you back £3.50 the same as that beer garden pint.

Or for those people wanting to stay fit but stay in doors out of the sun you could always visit the fully air conditioned Holt Park Active gym or swimming pool for those who really want to cool off.

Finally if you’d like the pace a little slower then why not pay a visit to Golden Acre Park. Enjoy an ice cream and a stroll round the lake taking in the natural beauty.

Whatever you decide to do remember to stay hydrated and apply some suncream.
