Centenary Square, Bradford
To the right is Bradford's City Hall. To the left is a development of bars, cafes and restaurants erected some time in the noughties. Much of this area was in the process of being red-developed to create 'City Park'.

According to Bradford Council's website:

"City Park is a six-acre park in the heart of Bradford which will contain the largest man-made water feature in any UK city. It is due for completion this winter [2011/12].

City Park will be a vibrant space for people of all ages to enjoy, with areas for rest, relaxation and play.

It is a critical part of Bradford’s regeneration and has been designed to bring jobs and prosperity to Bradford by attracting visitors and businesses into the district and helping to create the landscape for future investment.

City Park's central mirror pool will feature more than 100 fountains, laser lighting and mist effects. This unique feature will reflect and showcase the Grade 1-listed City Hall and will set Bradford apart. City Park, and the mirror pool in particular, will be an adaptable environment which is capable of holding events such as carnivals, markets, theatre productions, screenings and community festivals."
