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.

Millhouses Park is fabulous - old fashioned fun for children and lots to entertain the family for a good few hours. Now the cafe... this is not based on one visit by the way. We must have been there 50 times in the last few years, but after our last visit have finally been prompted to post this rather than... More

A nice location for a day out with family. Mill-house cafe is a ideal place for a quick meal or wagon & horses is best for Sunday roast. Boating lake will keep children occupied whilst you enjoy the scenery beauty of the park.

A delightful stop while walking the dog in the park. Water for the dog and coffee and great cakes for the owner. Breakfast is especially good - smoked salmon and scrambled egg on a muffin.

Millhouses Park - great, good facilities and pleasant normal people, Millhouses Park Cafe - terrible, slow service, extortionate prices and poor coffee. Is this the most expensive park cafe in the UK ? Top tip - take your own refreshments and avoid the rip off cafe.

Well, what a delightful park with offerings of something for everyone. I visited for the first time and it's lovely to see the park so busy on a beautiful sunny day! The sound of families enjoying themselves, dogs being walked and runners out for a jog - just like you'd hope to see with the sun out! Ok, so it's... More

I used to visit here with my husban when we first met and then with our three children who are all now adults.What a shock.It appears so neglected.This was once a lovely place that one could easily spend a full day in.It used to be so clean.A once lovely place gone to rack and ruin.

We work hard to ensure that the park is welcoming and well maintained, so I was really concerned when I read your review, especially as it is VERY different to most of the reviews we have.

I grew up around Millhouses park. I can remember back to the old Lido, the paddling pools and the extremely high slide in the playground. All that's changed now and while I miss a bit of history from my childhood, Millhouses park is a great park for family fun in the sun. The modern playground is great for younger children.... More
