Overview
More
Millhouses Park is located approximately 3 miles south-west of Sheffield City Centre. Part of the park was gifted by Earl Fitzwilliam & Marquis of Zetland in 1909, with the remainder purchased by Sheffield City Council. Recent improvements include the Splash! project, located on the site of the old swimming pool and lido and reintroduces water play into the park, many years after the lido was closed and filled in. It is an interactive play area designed to be both playful and educational with kit such as an Archimedes screw, hand pumps and see saws that pump water into a large snaking channel, where it can be dammed in several places before being scooped by a water wheel and fed into a recycling tank. The water then feeds the toilets, can be used to water plants and tops up the boating lake. The Fishway project has seen the old paddling pools filled in and converted into natural habitat that will allow fish such as trout to bypass the two weirs on the River Sheaf and move upstream to spawn. The design is very complex and incorporates rock pools, overhangs and resting places and mimics their natural habitat as much as possible. Park Facilities include:On-Site Parking2 multi-purpose fields Outdoor Gym Skate Park Obstacle Course Traditional Playground Zipwire SPLASH!

Good park, small enough to get round. One downside is the car park, one way in and one way out - difficult to turn right due to cars parking on either side of the entrance so can make that quite dangerous on busy days. Also,...More

Great park for a stroll and chilling out in. Plenty going on, tennis, boating pond, skate park, bowls, cricket, football and a river running through it. There is a super cafe in the middle, overlooking the boating pond.
