The entrance is clean and inviting and there's much to do for families: tennis courts, bowling greens, swings and a slide etc. the allotments were busy and well maintained and beyond all of this is a lovely walk up a slight hill but with great views across the Aire Valley. At the end, near the golf club, is a flight... More

Northcliffe Woods is a beautiful walk whatever the season. Ancient trees, a tiny stream, even a model railway makes for an interesting and varied stroll. Particularly beautiful in the Spring, carpets of bluebells provide a wonderful perfume and a haze of periwinkle blue. In summer meadow is left unmown apart from narrow pathways through the wildflowers and many grasses. The... More

Northcliffe park itself is on the outskirts of Bradford. Its huge, open and extremely peaceful. Its a great place to go for a walk and see the beautifully kept flower beds and grass. There's a children's play area and bowing green. You can walk for miles and forget that you are in the middle of a big town. Its extremely... More

This is a wonderful place to visit, no matter what time of the year. Golden meadows and woodland carpeted with bluebells in the springtime, woodland with wild garlic and other fauna to wonder through any time of the year; a miniature steam railway for young children to ride on; you can even get married here! There are children's playgrounds to... More

Gorgeous here whatever the weather and I enjoy it no matter how many times I visit. I love the fun day in June and enjoy going on a Sunday when the steam train is running and the steam enthusiasts take people for rides on the permanent track there. Children can't get enough of it.

Lots of footpaths, stream tumbling through the woodland, suitable for all ages and fitness levels, picnic area, miniature railway operates on some Sundays, surrounded by golf courses, playing fields, allotments, a plant nursery, and linked with Heaton Woods where, if you are lucky, you might even see deer.
