UK: Former visitor centre and glasshouse available for lease

Both the former West Leeds Country Park Visitor Centre and glasshouse in Pudsey Park have been put on the market to lease two-and-a-half years after last closing their doors, writes John Baron.

Both of the facilities shut in February 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and never re-opened after a subsequent round of Leeds City Council budget cuts, permanently closing the facilities last year in a bid to save the local authority £90,000 a year.

Council bosses have this week invited expressions of interest for the former visitor center, comprising animal enclosures, aviaries, and aquariums, as well as associated welfare rooms, offices, a classroom, and toilets.
