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.

Perfect place for kids

This park is continually improving and is ideal for young children. We have two, aged 3 and 5 and they love a couple of hours here pretty much any time of year.

I lived nearby and walked my dog in the park several times a day. We both loved the park what with the park itself being so lovely and other dog walkers. But sometimes other people on bikes scooters and other contraptions, kids and adults give no consideration to people with dogs especially old dogs. I can just imagine the shoe... More

Attended Millhouses park, the weather was beautiful, and had a lovely walk around around the park with my husband, the park seemed clean, could see effort had been made to keep the park tidy, but alas there was the inconsiderate dog owners.....We walked up to the boating lake and was sat watching the boats while having an ice-cream, there was...

The park was very busy in these areas but there was space for every one. A visit to the cafe was a little chaotic but the person in... More

Millhouses Park is absolutely beautiful to walk through. There are many activities houses in this gem of park and there is something for everyone, especially for those looking for chillax time after a week. Great for families with children what with the lovely interactive playground, nearby picnic tables, and lots of grassy area for family play time.

It may be busy but there is just plenty to do. Strip the kids off on a warm day and let them play with all the water sprinklers and stream and even better if you have plastic shoes for them. Take a picnic, use the cafe, go on the boats, go on the swings it is A* winner with a... More
