We visited the park when there was a fair in town and it was really busy.The boating lake looked like it needed repainting and the cafe there was manic, we couldn't get a coffee as the queue was so long and there were only handful of tables which were all full. There were so many pushchairs and bikes on the... More

Very large area and well laid out. Lots of walking up and down the sloping areas with trees and bushes suitable for photography. There is a river area and nearby is a kids playtime place. We went inside the house in the centre of the grounds and it was a worthwhile visit, full of information about the park and some... More

There is a nice play area for children sad to say they are infested with rotten, spoiled children whose parents probably never bothered to teach manners. Well I guess they are what they came from! My 3 year old daughter got injured due to these uncivilised children of uncivilised parents!! They should put community officers around this park at least... More

The play area is one of the best around with equipment for all ages, fenced off and well maintained. There is a beautiful botanic garden which is lovely year round but especially when the Acers are in coloured leaf. The museum and gallery have interesting permanent exhibitions as well as visiting exhibitions. Well worth a visit.

A well kept and interesting city park near the centre of Bradford. Has an art museum in its centre as well as a lovely boating lake. The Lake Cafe offers a good range of snacks with seating. A calm oasis in the middle of a lot of busy-ness.

I was surprised at the quality of service and the excellent food. It is not what I was expecting for a fast food venue. Will definitely go again.
