This park sadly missed out just on the best park in the UK and on arrival you will see why. Lake and pond, cafe and amazing mansion/stately home.

A stunning park with a number of themes. The Chinese garden which has a tranquil stream running through it. The mughall garden which has an amazing water feature. The boating pavillion where you hire a pedal boat and get an ice cream from is not a great experience. Staff are rude, they ignore you like you don't exist. They talk... More

Well kept with picturesque gardens including a lovely Mughal style garden to the side of Cartwrights gallery. The Mughal water gardens combines Bradford's local stone with Mughal designs to create a place to sit and relax. The gallery is also worth visiting with an interesting selection of prints and exhibitions to peruse. A credit to Bradford.

This is a beautiful park, with well kept gardens and an excellent children's play area. Cartwright Hall, in the park, is so worth a visit too. Staff are helpful and the whole place is delightful.

Lovely park for a day out. I took the children to feed the ducks. There's a lovely lake with boats for hire. The park has an excellent art gallery called Cartwright Hall. Great fun for the children.

Visit this park every year or so on a nice summers day. The lake boats being the main attraction. Only bad thing about the park is that you will sometimes see aggressive looking dogs let off the leashes by irresponsible dog walkers. Other than that it is a beautiful place to visit.

Walking to the University of Bradford wouldn't be any better than strolling inside the Lister park. It's the largest park at Bradford, with boating Lake, cafe, tennis and bowls, botanical gardens, art gallery and Islamic water gardens.
