Friends of Parkwood Springs
Parkwood Springs is an amazing natural ‘wild’ space close to the centre of the city of Sheffield. There is woodland and heath, open parkland, and a range of natural habitats where wild lupins bloom, rabbits run and kestrels hover. There are spectacular views over the city centre, the suburbs and the distant moors of the Peak District.
Parkwood Springs runs for nearly 1.5 miles from Rutland Road in the south to Herries Road, at Shirecliffe, to the north. It includes the old Sheffield Ski Village and leads on to Wardsend Cemetery.
The Friends Group help to protect and conserve the wildlife and natural environment and improve the green space of Parkwood Springs.
