Bebra Gardens is a small, attractive park close to Knaresborough Castle. It is a hidden gem providing a haven from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.
The Gardens are named in honour of the town’s links with Bebra in Germany, but were originally known as Moat Gardens as they are so close to Knaresborough Castle’s moat.
Bebra Gardens is located on a steep slope and there are sloping, meandering pathways leading through mature trees and conifers. The paths lead through the park to the paddling pool at the lowest point and onto Waterside below.
Bebra Gardens is open all year round, 24 hours a day. The paddling pool is open from Spring Bank Holiday (at the end of May) to the first week in September.
The Gardens were built on quite a steep slope that may cause difficulties for wheelchair users or the elderly.
