Owner description: 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.

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.

This is a public park that has clearly seen a lot of investment and care. As a visiting southerner I was delighted with the warm weather and spent a happy morning wandering all through the park. Basketball, five a side, tennis, and golf putting were some of the sports on offer, and for the kids, a boating lake, adventure playground,... More

especially the water area. She asks to come here often and weather permitting gets soaked every time. The water area is great for small and older children. The play area has a decent range of frames/swings and a zip wire. The skate park and mini bike track are great too. Another bonus to this park is that it is flat... More

A place I visited as a child and have fond memories of but last year I took my granddaughters and found changes not always for the better the boating lake was filthy and full of paper cans and rotting vegetation but apart from that I would give the park 5 out of 10 for the rest of it
