The Better Place project has been working together with local people to improve outdoor spaces for families with young children in our area of Bradford.
The Better Place Bradford team have been working their magic across parks, pocket parks, community centres, streets and green spaces all across Bowling and Barkerend, Bradford Moor and Little Horton for families with children under four.
Check out the map below to see locations of improved spaces and click on the links below the map to discover what you can find at each park to start your outdoor adventures together today!
About Better Place
Better Place is identifying and overseeing improvements to local parks and outdoor spaces with the aim of providing a healthier and happier environment for babies, young children and families. The project is also finding ways to reduce exposure to harmful traffic fumes for pregnant women and small children.
The Better Place project is a Better Start Bradford project that is being delivered in collaboration with Bradford Council, Bradford Trident, Groundwork UK, Public Health, voluntary and community sector groups and local people.

Oh and let's not forget the Little Free Libraries that are popping up everywhere!
Better Place Urban Ranger
Our Better Place Urban Ranger is always out and about looking after all of the Better Place sites. She makes sure that they are safe and free of rubbish and she also maintains the equipment. In fact she has recently been installing all of the Little Free Libraries across seven Better Place sites.
The Better Place Ranger also keeps a diary on the Better Place Facebook page. You can follow her adventures and any activities that are being run at Better Place sites on there.
If you spot anything on any of the Better Place sites that the Better Place Team should be aware of, please email the team at the second button below.
