Lister Park play area

Discover your green escape

The Bradford district is home to forty four parks, including Baildon, Bingley, Cullingworth, Denholme, Ilkley, Shipley, Silsden, Keighley and Queensbury.

Welcome to Bradford District parks and greenspaces

We are lucky to have so many beautiful parks and greenspaces in the Bradford District. From small community parks ideal for a game of bowls or letting the kids burn energy in the play area to larger spaces of natural beauty that are bustling with wildlife, perfect for a leisurely stroll or a picnic. In many of the parks, it’s a delight to rediscover historical monuments and architecture that speak of a rich and ambitious past. Today, we continue to nurture and take pride in our parks and greenspaces. They provide us with moments of peace whilst walking the dog, times of companionship as we meet with friends, and opportunities to exercise while using the fitness equipment or hiking. Whatever our reasons for visiting, we can all discover our green escape any day of the week.
