Description

Monk Stray is managed by City of York Council in consultation with Freemen of the City.

The remnants of the historic Monk Stray are divided into four distinct areas: The grassy parkland known as Heworth Stray, two areas of rough grazing land to either side of the Malton Road, and the privately leased golf course.

Heworth Stray was part of the ancient stray land for the Freemen of Monk Ward. This is a pleasant, open area of mown grass with a variety of trees giving welcome shade in the summer; a good place to kick a ball round or to fly a kite.

Access
