About the park
It is situated about a mile outside the city centre on Manningham Lane, the main road between Bradford and Shipley. It is one of the city's largest parks and was donated to the City of Bradford by Samuel Cunliffe Lister, who built Lister's Mill. The park has been successfully renovated in recent years. The lake has been re-opened for boats and a Mughal Water Garden constructed. There are also tennis and basketball courts, bowling greens and a children's playground.
Lister Park contains the Cartwright Hall art gallery, where permanent and temporary exhibitions of modern and traditional art can be seen.
It was voted Britain's Best Park for 2006, and nominated for the Best Park In Europe 2006.
Statue of Titus Salt, moved to the park from the town hall in 1896.
