Graves Park is located 3 miles south of Sheffield city centre, and at 87 hectares, it is the city's largest public park. The park boasts 2 playgrounds, woodlands, lakes, sports grounds, a cafe and urban farm with animals. The views on the walks are quite outstanding.

People start to gather for the walk at about  09:45 so they can have a chat before they walk. After the walk, which for some lasts up to 60 minutes, the conversations continue over refreshments in the Rose Cottage Cafe.

There are two walks each week to cover all abilities and preferences:

The short walk is pretty level and the paths are well-surfaced tarmac.

The long walk needs slightly more energy and takes in the woodlands and has fairly steep ascent and descents.

We encourage our walkers to go as far as they can comfortably walk, we don’t mind pausing to take in the view and enjoy a natter, especially on a sunny day!

Like all other health walks, the Graves Park walk is free.

The main entrance is at Charles Ashmore Road and Hemsworth Road, where public car parks (charges apply) are located.

 

The public toilets next to the cafe are wheelchair accessible and have baby changing facilities.

Buses:  20, X17, 24,25 and 75.
