Park Square is a quiet but elegant space in the western, business end of the city. Overlooked by a series of beautiful and austere Georgian and Victorian buildings and businesses, the square is framed by trees. Alongside the beautiful lanterns created by East Street Artist Alison Smith which hang from the square’s central tree, Park Square’s five most commanding trees have been decorated with a sprinkling of LEDs which climb up their trunks and into the trees’ uppermost branches.
Having listened to the feedback they received last year, LeedsBID’s Christmas in Leeds campaign decided to light up this square, bringing some festive cheer and winter light into this previously darker end of town. Not only are these trees lit up with twinkling festive elegance now; they will continue to light the square during the darkest months of the year whilst the clocks are rolled back, bringing light and subtle beauty to the square.
