Graves Park is a large parkland area in the South of Sheffield, between the districts of Norton, Woodseats and Meadowhead. The park was developed by Alderman J. G. Graves between 1926 and 1936, to protect the thousand year old woodland from building development. Mr Graves donated the 100.362 hectares (248 acres) park to the city.
Went here for Pretty Muddy run which was great. The park was lovely (if a little hilly!), A lot of space to explore and animals en route. I'll have to go back again to explore the petting zoo!
Lovely park. Farm animals and a shop where you can buy farm eggs. Nice space and cafe.
I luv this place so much. Have been walking in Graves with my dogs 4 more than 30 years. It has everything u could want n free in most car parks. Ps I'm only 45 not yet a pensioner. Have fun n enjoy
A lovely relaxing experience for the everyone of all ages and abilities. Paths for prams and chair access all around. The animals don't mind being touched especially if you have bought some food. Clean facilities, well kept park and play area. Very friendly staff and volunteers. Nice and simple hot and cold food and drinks selection in the cafe. Or bring your own and picnic, the car park is right next to the cafe and grassed area. Fresh eggs and souvenirs for sale in the shop.
Beautiful place to visit you go to see animals wildlife ponds Woodlands streams you can play all the sports in the fields as well as specifically dedicated tennis courts cricket pictures and a sports pavilion
Very big park with animal farm, kids play area, sand pit, vast lawn area, pond, walking/jogging routes, cafe, seasonal bouncy castle, seasonal train ride for kids and lots of trees. I love it. Good for Barbeque.
Brilliant local park. Farm animals at the Norton Lane entrance (enter via the little gate in the wall next to the monument just by the church on the bend in Norton Lane), and animal park over by bunting nook entrance, 2 play areas (one down on the Woodseats entrance), lake / ponds, tennis courts, golf, bowling greens, wooded walk, lots of space. Excellent.
Love this park, loads of facilities from golf to tennis.. massive amount of space to run around and tire the kids out.. large park play area, free animal farm where you can buy food to feed all kinds of animals. Parking near the farm isn't great and is pay and display, I live in walking distance so not an issue. would recommend a visit and a good long walk around to see it all.
Graves Park is always one of my favourite parts of Sheffield situated on the south side of the city and close to the Derbyshire border. The park is the largest park in the city with lots of walking areas to enjoy. The animal farm is one of the best in Yorkshire for the public to attend. The Rose Garden Cafe is very popular also for snacks and iced creams in the summer. The lake areas are always full of ducks and geese. Up towards the big estate house the field are full of pure highland cattle and sheep from the farm. And during the spring and summer it isn't uncommon to witness births in the fields. There are also other areas around the park to enjoy, football fields to have a kick around for the kids. In the summer a local cricket club uses a part of the ground and there are paying tennis courts and mini golf course up on the Meadowhead side of the park.
Large park with great kid's play area. It has ponds with ducks and a free farm. Excellent food on offer at the cafe for a reasonable price. There's parking available as well as public toilets. Excellent day out for kids.
It has everything you would want from a park. Free parking and paid parking depending which side you enter, big open grassy areas, ponds and wildlife, a cafe serving food and drink and a rose garden, play grounds for the children and an animal park. At times there are shows or fairs set up too depending on the time of year.
You do have to pay for parking, but there is sometimes room on the outer of the park. Small petting Farm located next to the carpark. Aches of land great for a good long walk. We often head into the wooded area past the duck pond to get a bit muddy. Then if you fancy there is a tea rooms and play area for the children. Which is full of different types of outdoor toys, including a sand area and play diggers. My children love it here.
Great place to have on my doorstep walked here for over 37 years dog walk, walking recovering from a few serious operations a really great asset to the city
Good park. Play area for the kids. Open spaces. Petting farm. Good walks.
Nice park, spacious. Good play area and cafe. Animal farm is worth a visit
Graves Park has beautiful woodland walks but the highlight is the animals. There is an excellent pets corner with cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, llamas and other small animals. There are also fields of cattle and sheep. It's great for children and adults as well!
Amazing, sprawling, city park. An Oasis in the suburbs. Varied and beautiful with regular events, great playgrounds and a good cafe. The animal farm is a real bonus, you can even hold some of the smaller animals on some days well worth a visit if you are a local or just visiting
