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

This is a regular haunt of ours when we walk our dog. We tend to only go in the evenings as it is significantly quieter and stick to the far end of the trail. The walk is beautiful, lots of winding paths and a few stepping stones and bridges to hop across. Several miles worth of picturesque walking through the... More

I walked a couple miles downstream from the small car park, along the stream. It was a dry day after the rains, and was a bit muddy in places, so would recommend walking boots or wellies. Take your camera as well - there's plenty of small waterfalls, treetrunks artfully fallen (or placed) across still ponds, making wonderful photo opportunities, stepping... More

Very nice walk with good transport links. I went on a weekday and it was pretty quiet. Perhaps could be better signposted but other than that I have no complaints!
