“Not a garden.... what a waste of water!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It would be a nice place to sit on a summers day except that its absolutely swamped with people which makes it horrible. This is a waste of water and I cant understand why they call a bit of grass a garden! Pointless and if you want to visit a beautiful area then go a mile or two out of town and see the gorgeous countryside! Sheffield is the only city in the uk to be inside a national park, go have a look!
