This popular park was awarded the John Whitehead Award from the Ripon Civic Society and was voted in the top ten of People's Choice Awards for Green Flag parks - a scheme that aims to recognise the public's most cherished green spaces at the heart of the community.
Visitors can enjoy outdoor games including a flat bowling green with a thriving club membership, putting, crazy golf and the fabulous Sun Parlour Café serving home cooked food and tasty cakes.
For birdwatchers, carefully sited nesting boxes have encouraged many varieties to make a home in the Gardens, including woodpeckers and goldcrests.
The Green Man Trail contains a unique collection of Green Man plaques hidden amongst the trees for people of all ages to discover. Some of the plaques are large, some plaques are small and some of them are quite hard to find!
Everyone can also learn more about the trees of Spa Gardens by following the Family Tree Trail and Quiz.
