Description: Millhouses Park is located approximately 3 miles south-west of Sheffield...
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.

Dissappointing food for outrageous prices. Cakes very expensive. Furniture being scraped along the floor by the staff whilst customers dining , surely to pick them up to move would be more considerate and far less noisy. Even a cup of tea was overpriced, either that or the cups aren,t much bigger than egg cups. Would only visit again if I... More

Came here and went on the boats. Very fun. Alot of money has been invested in to this park and it makes it great. They are revamping the small play area for small children to make it look fresh. Would definitely recommend.
