Lovely walk. Parked on road but a small car park is available. Nice cafe with really nice cakes and reasonably priced and had water bowls for dogs

A lovely place to walk your dog. Very sheltered and lots of water. A couple of different tracks which could be sign posted better. Short walk with good picnic area. Gets very busy on warm days.

I have been coming here since the 1950's, and still enjoy the walks around. We love to take our grandchildren on our walks with the dogs.Perfect place on a nice sunny day to take a picnic. Plenty of woodland, and a lovely river, you will never get bored. Also a lovely playground for the children.

Had a fab first visit with kids and dogs. Really good walk. Shame there's no bins on the walk though. The water park isn't good for kids over 9. They got fed up rather quickly but really enjoyed the park.

I've been walking up and down the Rivelin over 50 years, it's a lovely river, and a great place to visit. Local volunteers have done a great job working on the nature trail over the past years, and I'm very much enjoying the 5th edition of their beautifully-produced guide 'Walking the Rivelin' (bought mine from Sheffield Scene on Surrey Street),...

Have done parts before, but, pick a good day and the full walk is a great and informative way to pass a couple of hours. The paths are well marked, and many of the historic industry sites are marked and have some basic info. Much of the Sheffield steel industry started here, from the 17th. century, and maps can be...

Nice to go for a long walk and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, its quite quiet midweek even in the school holidays so it was very peaceful, and he trees gave some respite from the sun in places
