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. Park Facilities include:On-Site Parking2 multi-purpose fields Outdoor Gym Skate Park Obstacle Course Traditional Playground Zipwire SPLASH!

It has watched Sheffield grow and develop over the centuries, and it tells a story - of great women and men, of wars, of industry and commerce, and of the people who have lived in Sheffield. Here people have prayed, made music, offered hospitality and cared for the poor, as they do still today. The building reflects its many uses, with the traditional worship spaces including the grand high altar and the quiet crypt chapel, but also the busy conference centre, and the Archer Project area where the homeless and vulnerable find what they need Here every visitor will find something to interest them. You can book a special visit, or just call in and explore. You may find that a service is happening, in which case you can join in or not as you choose. Everyone is invited - Sheffield Cathedral is a place for all people. We are open every day of the year. « less
