Bradford Mirror Pool Reopens

Thanks to the fantastic work of our Maintenance team, the Bradford Mirror Pool fountains have been turned back on after a water flow problem cause them to be nonoperational throughout July. The repair has been completed ahead of schedule, with only the central jet remaining to be tackled.

While the Mirror Pool was turned off, Bradford Council turned the City Park into a beach and used the space for events as part of their summer science festival. While these were both hugely popular, the people of Bradford have made their delight at the return of the water very much known through social media! Thank you, Bradford, for your patience and enthusiasm!

The feature consists of a number of jets, fog, and a large space that can be flooded or left dry as required. It is estimated that the Mirror Pool will be reopened in August, with the fountain jets being turned back on in November.

Trinity Square Project Featured in Landzine Magazine

We were featured in Landzine’s publication this week, with the magazine featuring a piece on the Trinity Square project in Hull. Landzine said the mirror pools are “enticing people to touch, walk through them or stare at the occasional pulse which creates beautiful patterns in the surface. ”

The article also discussed the ways Trinity Square has been used an exhibition space, both as part of Hull’s time as the 2017 City of Culture and since, including the ‘Hall for Hull’ exhibition from Pezo von Ellrichhausen and artist Felice Varini. You can read the full article on the Landzine website here.
