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

“Come to Millhouses Park, you'll enjoy it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

Something here for everyone. Safe cycling for little learners, tennis courts, football spaces, small lake for hiring a pedalo or sailing model boats, wonderful exercise machines for adults and well maintained large play area for youngsters. Have fun on a warm day in the water science section. Have a go in the skate boarding area or the humps and bumps of the mini mountain bike course, admire the beautifully set out ornamental gardens or go through the perfumed walkway. Have a picnic but if you run out of food there is a very popular cafe. Well done Sheffield for providing such a super park!

“Lovely Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

this is a nice large park, I like to come here for a change sometimes but it's quite far out of town so I don't visit unless I have a lot of time, preferably most of the day and the weather is good
