The Knavesmire

KnavesmireFor a large open space, look no further than the Knavesmire. Not just for horseracing, the Knavesmire is an ideal spot for running off steam, kicking a football or flying a kite on a windy day. Over the road is Hob Moor, and together these two grassy areas make up Micklegate Stray.
We say There isn’t much in the way of amenities at all(it’s a bit of a walk to the nearest café or toilet) but if it’s a large green space you’re after, the Knavesmire fits the bill. Join the tired parents and dog-walkers early on a Sunday morning. Look out for special events, from fairs to festivals, races to car boot sales. The Knavesmire floods easily, so if there’s been a spell of rainy weather, check before you set off or you’ll be puddle-hopping.
