Summer adventures for families at Sheffield Park
There's lots to look forward to at Sheffield Park and Garden this summer. Whether you visiting with friends, family and children, looking to learn something new, enjoy an activity or just escape to a quiet corner of the garden, take a look at the events we have planned for the coming summer months.
There's still plenty to do during the last weeks of summer here at Sheffield Park and Garden. It's the season when the garden comes alive with kingfishers and dragonflies darting across the waterlily covered lakes. Sun dappled glades wait to be discovered and the cooling sound of the cascade soothes and calms on a hot day.
Alternatively, you can escape to the dappled shade of Walk Wood and stroll along the boardwalks or venture off-path to roam between the trees. This historic area of woodland is a haven for wildlife, wild flowers and a whole variety of trees.
If wide open spaces with birds soaring over head is more your thing, then take a walk across the parkland through the tolls down to the River Ouse. This recently restored river bank is a peaceful place to stop for a picnic, either across the rope bridge on the island, or on the flood plain.
