At least a couple of these stars are for the staff and volunteers at the club who were extremely friendly and welcoming. Helpful stewards, a decent hot chocolate and one of the best club shops I've set foot in. Even as an away fan I found myself happily browsing. The ground itself has two of my pet hates: a running track and a plastic pitch, but they didn't detract too much. The dropped two points mind you... 😉

Not a bad ground really, curious place with the running track around the pitch. Decent place to watch football on a warm day I imagine, the facilities in the ground are decent but the parking isn’t great. Any club’s with a sizeable away following will struggle to park.

Really enjoyed the visit to the ground good seating area with standing behind both goals. The club made away supporters feel welcome and the home fans are very friendly. Basic food available the only negative being the very small toilets which did not really cater for a big crowd

The pitch was lovely. The club and bar staff were accommodating and welcoming. The bar itself was great, with a screen showing the early kick off on Sky. Food was ok. The ground itself looked like it needed renovating. The pitch itself was fine. But the stand looked a bit battered. I didn’t not enjoy the day out, but this ground was probably the one that least jumped out to me so far. There was nothing particularly special about it, not a big fan of the athletics track that sits you a fair distance away from the pitch. Just an ok day. Facilities weren’t great either.
Definitely looks to have improved since my last visit roughly 7 years ago

History (from Wikipedia)

Horsfall Stadium is a sports stadium just off Halifax Road in BradfordWest YorkshireEngland, 2.5 mi (4.0 km) south-west of the city centre. It is the home of Bradford (Park Avenue) A.F.C.

It was originally built as a running track in 1931, and was upgraded for 
football when Bradford (Park Avenue) moved to the stadium in 1994. The track was upgraded to a synthetic surface at the same time.

In 2007, a number of improvements were made to the ground, including a new directors' and sponsors' room, a meeting room for the players and management, a new medical room, kit room and toilets. In addition, fully monitored CCTV has been installed to protect the facility and prevent the vandalism that has plagued the ground in previous seasons. The main stand was also recently refurbished with seats, 1,800 of them coming from 
Lord's Cricket Ground. These changes were made due to new stringent ground grading requirements of the Football Association.

Avenue were ambitious to regain their league status and, in 2008, announced plans to move away from Horsfall, either to share 
Odsal Stadium with Bradford RLFC, or to move to a new stadium of their own.[1] However, as of May 2020 no building work has started.
