About

A 4.4-mile flat route, with very little incline and benches along the way. Discover Peasholm Lake, Champion Trees, Lily Pond, Secret Garden, Jonno's Field and Valley Gardens.


Peasholm Lake
Take a moment to watch the nature at Peasholm Lake. If you’re lucky you may catch a glimpse of a Red Throated Diver, a Great White Egret or even a Kingfisher!
0.6 miles to Champion Trees

Champion Trees
Keep your eyes peeled on the tree trail for Champion Trees, such as the Black Italian Poplar. They are the largest or tallest of their kind in
Britain – there are no fewer than five!
1 mile to Lily Pond

Lily Pond
As you walk towards the top of the Glen you will come across a pond covered in beautiful lilies. The statue that appears to be flying across the
pond is Hermes- the Greek god of transitions and boundaries.
0.5 miles to Secret Garden

Secret Garden
Can you find the Secret Garden? The Victorians built a fashionable rockery garden with a pond and plants. Take a seat and enjoy this charming scenery today.
0.6 miles to Jonno’s field

Jonno’s Field
Enjoy a similar experience to the Easter Island in the Pacific with these fantastic wooden sculptures that tower over Scarborough 
1.7 miles to Valley Gardens

Valley Gardens
In Spring, feast your eyes on some of the most impressive daffodil patches in town. In Summer admire the beautifully designed
flowerbeds.
