Manor Fields is a Green Flag Award-winning district park with a difference. Located just two miles from Sheffield City Centre, this hidden gem is a natural haven with stunning views and a hub of community activity.
Owned by Sheffield City Council and managed by The Green Estate Community Interest Company, Manor Fields has a unique and distinctive style which merges art and nature together. The park features over five kilometres of tarmacked paths which wind their way through 24 hectares of naturalistic landscape combining wetland, wildflowers, woodland pockets, sculptured features and extensive meadow walks. The park is also a haven for wildlife, with almost 90 species of birds recorded onsite so far.
A great place for families, Manor Fields has two playgrounds as well as an interactive sandpit, a pondside boardwalk and informal kick-around areas. For fitness and wellbeing, visitors can have a go on the Parkletics equipment, join in the weekly Parkrun or enjoy the Outdoor City run route.
Getting to Manor Fields Park
Manor Fields Park lies in the area between the A6135 City Road, Manor Park Crescent and Queen Mary Road. Finding the City Road entrance is easy and there is a big Manor Fields Park entrance sign to show you are in the right place. For those with a Sat Nav, S2 1GF takes you to York House – close to the main park entrance. There is a small car park here with disabled parking spaces.
For those using public transport, there are regular Blue Route trams along City Road from Sheffield city centre with the Spring Lane tram stop less than two minutes from the entrance. Many buses stop right outside York House.
