Pontefract Park and Racecourse is a large recreational green space on the northern edge of Pontefract just south west of junction 32 of the M62. Pontefract Racecourse is a 2 mile circuit, the longest flat racecourse in the UK. There is a new children's playground and two lakes in the Park. A new £20.8m Leisure and Wellbeing Hub opened in Pontefract Park in the spring of 2021. Pontefract parkrun takes place every Saturday at 9am. It is a 5km (3.1m) funrun starting at the lake and including a full circuit of the racecourse, open to all abilities, including walkers.
