Worth taking time out to visit

Nice environment with many places to go nearby. Good when the various markets and events held there. Sheffield by the Sea is always worth a visit.

It was a music festival this weekend so the peace gardens were very busy but it was great to be with other people just sitting on the benches and grass. The fountains are really nice too

Good place for photos and lots of eateries/bars . Browns is excellent for service, drinks and food. The fountain looks spectacular and the whole place is spotless. Good for kiddies and oldies alike!!

Very peaceful and relaxing place to sit and relax and unwind wether it's with a book or just on your break from work to eat lunch. On a hot sunny day you will find the peace gardens are always packed with people gathering to chat and catch some sun. Tranquility found gained from the scenery. The fountains and flowing water...
