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.

Strange shape of park and not very big. Need to seriously invest in a new toilet block! One female toilet which is very dark inside. Lots of pregnant lady's struggling to hold on. Baby change is right in the way of people queueing, so feel Sorry for anyone having to change their child on busy days as you will have... More

Great playground for children of all ages which has different sections - a traditional playground, a wooden balance course, bike/skate park and water based play area. Nice cafe though a little expensive. The park is well kept. There is a car park on site but there is a charge. A great place to go for a family day out.

We love going for a walk with the dig, followed by a kick about with the kids and then gorgeous food and drink at the cafe.
