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.

There is a play area for the children, a skateboard area, outdoor gym equipment for adults, tennis courts, a bowling green and areas to play football etc. The park also... More

We took the little one here on a sunny afternoon, was a bit busy with kids being off school but still had plenty of places and space to run around. The water splash area was enjoyed by my son although spare clothes are recommended. The play area was brilliant as it was suitable for younger abilities and allowed progression. We... More

Definitely a hot summers day is ideal for a wonderful day out at this park. There is plenty to do for children of all ages the water part is very popular with younger children. There is also a boating lake here with pedal boats which you need to pay a reasonable price to hire also there is a bouncy castle... More

Nice scenery and lots to do. 💚🍎🍧🍦🍸⛲⛲⛲. Great for picnics. Be careful of the river don't let kids or dogs too close as there's a 5ft drop.

It's one of best parks in Sheffield. There is a lot to do for everybody. Kids happy to use the playground or green pitches, You can work on your fitness, raw the boat on the pond, play tennis, mini golf or bawling. There are spaces for football and basket ball lovers. Big and cheap car park available.
