This a nice enough park in the city centre, it's not really a tourist attraction. It's nice sitting there on a summers day or its fairly nice to walk past but this is not a must visit by any means. If you stumble across it great, if not I wouldn't worry.

Absolutely love this place. After walking around the city centre it's fabulous just to sit and have a bit of peace whilst facing the beautiful Town Hall building, especially when it's sunny. Children seem to use it as a small water park running through the fountains when it's hot to cool off. It is nice all year round though.

Visit here quite often when in Sheffield and more recently to see the elephants of the Herd of Sheffield. Quite often a lot of street activity and if this doesn't amuse you watching some of the weddings surely will. Lots of cafes and restaurants around it and handy for the top of far gate and the moor. A lovely place... More

I enjoyed the carefree atmosphere as families took advantage of the water displays & soaked themselves on this very hot summer's day. I paddled & kept myself cool whilst younger people ran around in safety. Lovely feature in the centre of a great city.

I love the Peace Gardens. It's design is a pleaure to look at and on good days it draws a lot of people who use the grassed areas to relax and the children use the water fountain to play and cool down. It's a pleasure to sit in the Peace Gardens and watch the world go by.
