Step out Sheffield


Monday Walks


There will not be a walk at Crystal Peaks on Monday 23rd December. Otherwise ALL Monday walks over the Christmas period (23rd and 30th December) will operate as normal.  

The four health walks on Mondays include Graves Park the biggest of Sheffield’s municipal parks, Crystal Peaks a chance to explore the greenspaces that lie at the edges of the city, Firth Park given to the people of Sheffield by Mark Firth in 1875 and a relatively new walk in Bolehills Park, Crookes with its amazing views over Stannington, Loxley and the countryside beyond.

 
Graves Park, at 87 hectares, is the biggest in Sheffield. The main walk here makes the most of the size by going right around the boundaries. A shorter, flatter option is always available. Other attractions at Graves include the rare breeds centre, the lakes, a big children’s playground and a café.

The Crystal Peaks walk meets in the shopping complex and enjoys a variety of routes in and around Beighton and Rother Valley Country Park, or along Ochre Dike to the Westfield Plantation.
 
Firth Park
is a 16-hectare landscaped park with lovely flower beds and access to some ancient woodland (Hinde Common Wood).The park itself is suitable for wheelchairs. Longley Park, Parson Cross Park and Concord Park provide alternative routes for some walkers. The facilities in Firth Park include the Grade 11 listed Clock tower, a bowls pavilion and green, a children’s playground, a purpose-built First Start Centre and a café. 

A new health walk was launched on 4th June 2018. This walk is based in Bolehills Park in the Walkley/Crookes area of the city. Walkers meet in the temporary Bowls Pavilion beside the bowling greens in Bolehills Park. For further details and some photos - click on the New walks tab and then go to Bolehills Park.
