WATER will be returning to City Park at the end of this month, if only temporarily.

Having teamed up with The Zorb Zone, the Bradford Literature Festival will be bringing both a boating pool and a zorbing pool to the city centre as part of their themed days, to make up for the non-working fountains.

These family fun days with a theme are coming to City Park as part of the festival, and best of all, they are completely free.
