WORKS to repair the mirror pool in City Park are ongoing, almost a week after a pipe burst put it out of action.

The huge water feature was switched off on Thursday following a “major pipe burst” that caused damaged to the pump room and equipment that runs the feature.

The timing was unfortunate - with the burst happening as Bradford was preparing for the warmest bank holiday weekend in recent memory.

At the time Bradford Council said the damage “will take some time to fix.”

The Council yesterday said there was no update on when the fountains will be up and running again, other to say that work is still ongoing to make repairs.

The City Park mirror pool, which is in the shadow of City Hall, opened in 2012, and contains the highest fountain in any British city, capable of shooting water up to 100 ft (30m) into the air.


It was part of the £24,569,664 re-development of the area to create an "urban park" in the heart of the city.

During warm weather the water feature attracts thousands to the city, and it is a centrepiece of numerous city centre events such as Bradford Festival and Bradford Science Festival.
