Attraction details
Owner description: 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. Park Facilities include:On-Site Parking2 multi-purpose fields Outdoor Gym Skate Park Obstacle Course Traditional Playground Zipwire SPLASH!

“Millhouses Park, Sheffield”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Millhouses Park, Sheffield is an excellent Park for young and old and has been in the South of Sheffield for as long as I can remember. The Park is always well kept and has a boating lake mostly for children and a fishing area and tennis courts. The park is located in the south of Sheffield and although a little far out from the city there is easy access to shops and required facilities. There is a small paddling area for children and would be very adequate for a family day out with watering holes also close on hand Lots of grassy green areas to sit - a must for a day out for every age.

“One of the best parks”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a very popular parks for a family visit. There is a good space for football and other ball games. There is plenty to do for children, a great playground with new things to do. A magnificent area for paddling and experimenting with water activities for the very young. A boating lake with a great man in charge. A scrumptious cafe with wonderful homemade cakes! A must for the family

“Free Fun for the Kids (young & old)”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Millhouses Park is a long thin park but with a lot of attractions - the play area has plenty of equipment for young and old from the 'death slide', the assault course to the climbing frame - as an added bonus there is a wet park linked with a range of activities designed to get kids active and wet. Don't forget to take their bikes and scooters along as there is a BMX/skateboard park for the older kids and a scooter/bike track fspecially designed for the younger ones. The park also has a children's boating lake (£2per child for 15minute). There are plently of picnic spots, open fields, cafes and ice cream vans. Plus an added bonus - a river runs the length of the park and there are many places where the kids (young and old) can take off their shoes n socks and go for a paddle, catch sticklebacks or build dams - great day out and free if you want it to be.
