Hyde Park, also known as Woodhouse Moor, is an open space approximately one mile (1.6 km) from Leeds city centre and a few minutes away from Leeds Arts University. It consists of 3 parts: a formal park, Woodhouse Moor which is made up of around 26 hectares , and two other open areas to the east of it. These are known as the Monument (or Upper) and Cinder (or Gravel, or Lower) Moors which are used for events such as circuses and sporting matches.
The park has just under 3 million visits a year and is the second most popular urban park in Leeds. The park has five main paths which meet in the centre, each is tree-lined and they divide the park into different areas of usage.
