Bradford gets its 'Mirror Pool'

Finally Bradford has got something to be proud of that will help put them back on the map.
The central landscaping and eagerly awaited 'Mirror Pool' has been completed, after years of city centre development being put on hold.

City Park in Bradford, designed by Gillespies landscape architects and urban designers contains the largest city-centre water feature anywhere in the UK, at 4,000 sq metres, and the UK’s tallest urban fountain which reaches a spectacular 100ft.

The masterplan for Bradford City Centre was original drawn up in 2003 but wasn't submitted for planning till 2007 before starting on site in late 2009.

The park centres on the Grade I Listed, 19th Century City Hall and helps to connect attractions like the National Media Museum and the Alhambra Theatre with new transport hubs.

Now the city is starting to look like a place where people will want to live and this can only help bring back the developers who pulled out in the peak of the recession.
