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.

What a lovely venue to hold the Parkrun event. 300 other people obviously also enjoy this facility every Saturday morning too.

Many landscaped acres of intriguing parkland and right on the edge of the city. Crowned by the magnificent art gallery, Cartwright Hall in its heart this feature makes a fabulous setting for Melas and other events. Visit anytime, you will not be disappointed

A breath of fresh air not far from the city centre. It also has a boating lake and plenty of wildlife.

A wide variety of plants/flowers and trees, plus boating lake (rowing boats and pedalos, no noisy motor boats). Ideal for a gentle stroll. Cartwright Hall Art Gallery in the middle of the park has a rolling schedule of exhibitions.
