Rowntree Park is open daily every day of the year apart from Christmas Day. Opening times are from 8am Monday to Friday and 9am Saturdays and Sundays, closing at dusk. There is easy access with mostly level paths. A short walk from the city centre, on the banks of the River Ouse, this inspiring 30-acre park has undergone a £1.8million refurbishment, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, restoring it to its original splendour.The park was a gift to the City of York by Messrs Rowntree & Co. in 1921 and is a memorial to the Cocoa Works staff who fell and suffered during World War 1. A set of listed gates off Terry Avenue were added to the park in memory of those who fell in the World War II. Bronze plaques mark both occasions within the centrally located Lych Gate. There is also a well equipped children's play area, skate park, tennis court, bowling green and ornamental lake.
