Pearson Park, between Princes Avenue and Beverley Road, still resonates with Victorian grandeur and features an excellent play area and a conservatory greenhouse.
The acclaimed poet Philip Larkin lived in a house overlooking Pearson Park from 1956 - 1974. Larkin was heavily influenced by the city and on an autumn afternoon in the park you can experience something of the particular atmosphere that pervades much of his work.
