Beckett Park is open grassland, bounded to the north by the Headingley Campus of Leeds Beckett University, to the west by the Queenswood estate and to the east by the Beckett’s Park estate. It is extended by woods in three directions - north-west by Queen’s Wood, north-east by Church Wood and south by Batcliffe Wood. It includes tennis courts, a children’s play area, a skateboard park and outdoor adult exercise equipment.
