Explore Leeds with the Love Exploring app

Love Exploring is a NEW, FREE fun way to encourage families to be active together and inspire people of all ages to explore their local parks and discover some of the city’s cultural treasures.

Winter Fairies will continue to sprinkle their magical fairy dust in Armley/Gotts Park, Bramley Fall Park, Cross Flatts Park, Meanwood Park, Middleton Park, Roundhay Park and at Temple Newsam Estate until 28 February. Use your smartphone to see them dancing and flying among the trees as they flutter through our parks.

Love Exploring walking trails and Dinosaur Safaris are still on offer in the following Leeds Parks:

  • Roundhay Park
  • Middleton Park
  • Cross Flatts Park
  • Bramley Fall Park
  • Armley / Gotts Park
  • Golden Acre Park
  • Temple Newsam
  • Meanwood Park
  • and along Leeds City Centre Waterfront

Available to download to your smartphone, the app lets you join our Dinosaur Safari, through an augmented reality (AR) game. Follow the trail on your smartphone and encounter life-like AR Dinosaurs along the route as they roar and swish their tails so users can take and share photos of themselves interacting with them.

Simply download the Love Exploring app at the Google Store or the Apple Store and select Leeds; then just click on the local trail or game you want to start and you’re off …

Use the map on your smartphone to guide you to the nearest dinosaur, you’ll get an alert when you are close, then view it on your screen and take a photo to remember your fun day out! There’s even a dinosaur quiz to play, linked to the national curriculum it will test parents’ and children’s knowledge of the Jurassic age.

As well as the Dinosaur Safari, the Love Exploring app includes some of Leeds’ well-loved walking trails showcasing many of our city’s highlights. There are over 20 walking trails to discover, including the Street Art Trail with its ever-growing collection and the relaxing Mindfulness Trail in Roundhay Park. There are lots of other walks and trails around Leeds City Centre which you can enjoy, so start planning now!

The app and all the activities are also FREE to download from Love Exploring.
