Winter walks at Sheffield Park and Garden

Man walking across winter parkland scene

There's nothing quite like wrapping up for a crisp winter walk, so put on your gloves and scarf and come and see Sheffield Park in this dramatic season. With a choice of pathways to keep your boots clean, or woodland and parkland to get your boots dirty, there's a route to suit everyone.


Winding paths provide easy access and lead you around the lakes of our landscape garden which covers over 120 acres. See our unique and world-renowned collection of trees in their winter sculptural beauty.

Pick up a map at reception and set off to discover our historic parkland.  The 1.5 mile circular walk takes you past Ringwood Roll natural playtrail, Skyglade and our Second World War pillbox.  Explore further by venturing down to the River Ouse where you will find the remains of an 18th century lock and our wildlife haven.  Don't forget your wellies.
