Bradford City Park praised by academics as example to follow

A TEAM of academics has produced a study on the impact of City Park in Bradford in which they detail how it has brought the city together by "drawing in marginalised groups".

The article, titled "a great meeting place report," says the park offers important lessons for public policy and how to make schemes in other cities succeed.

Dr Anna Barker said: "As social researchers working in Bradford, we have been keen observers of the site and were interested in exploring: the different ways the space is used by members of the public, their experiences, perceptions and feelings for the site; the experiences and perceptions of business owners and workers who share the site; the way the space is regulated and managed by various groups, eg the local authority and different social groups, police and security services.
