Leeds Valley Park, which is owned, developed and managed by global property group Goodman, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national landscaping award.

The annual BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries) Awards in association with Horticulture Week, which have now been running for 34 years, pay tribute to exceptional skill and quality in the landscaping industry. Leeds Valley Park has been nominated in the Grounds Maintenance of Business and Private Grounds category.

Goodman employs a dedicated team from Grace Landscapes to maintain Leeds Valley Park, which is sensitively designed to include mature trees and shrubs, water features and cycle tracks for the enjoyment of the Park’s many occupiers.

Richard Potter, Property Services Director of Goodman’s UK Business Parks, said: “Goodman’s business parks have a history of success in the landscaping industry. Last year we won two BALI awards for Arlington Square and Gloucester Business Park and this recent nomination for Leeds Valley Park demonstrates industry recognition for the high standards that we are committed to providing to our customers.

“As one of the world’s leading providers of superior business space, Goodman understands the importance of providing quality surroundings to those that work on our parks. Leeds Valley Park is a leading example of how all the amenities a business community needs can be combined within natural surroundings. Its appeal has attracted leading businesses such as BAE Systems, Arla Foods and ING Car Leasing, to the park.


Leeds Valley Park offers a superior location with accessibility to major transport routes. The park is in close proximity to the M1and M62, and has a regular bus service to the city centre and surrounding suburbs. The Park is situated in the Aire Valley region which is one of the most significant areas of investment opportunity in the Yorkshire and Humber region. In terms of amenities, Leeds Valley Park has a dedicated on-site licensed cafe and many hotels, set within a well managed environment.

Representatives from Goodman and Grace Landscapes will now go forward to compete for the category prize at a glittering awards ceremony on 3rd December 2010 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London.
