Local Parks & Gardens

Sheffield Park

71 Ferry Rd, Scunthorpe DN15 8LY, UK

Haven't been in Sheffield Park since my Daughter ( pictured) was a toddler! Decided to give it a try 6 weeks ago when we got our new Dog ( also pictured) as needed somewhere clean, open and safe( we hoped!) to walk her and train her as she's blind. We haven't been disappointed, so far, and are now coming here very regularly😀. Each visit has been pleasant, Doggie loves it, area quite clean ( clearly receives a good bit of attention from the council) and most times we've been there has been council vans seen in the park, so far. Upto now too, most other Dog owner's have appeared responsible and friendly. Don't know if lot's will change when warmer weather comes or Summer Hols arrive though, as that's one of the reasons I stopped going so much previously- bad behaviour, rowdy, cheeky Kids and worse! We are really happy with the park at the moment and it's nice to see so many birds.

Not too much to do. There are 2 parks. One for toddlers that is on a field which is also a picnic area with tables and chairs. The other Park is for people around 5-12 year olds. There is also a skate park next to the 5-12 yer olds Park that is occasionally used by teenagers. There is a big field with a football pitch on. The football cage at the other end of the park is normally used by teens upwards. There is also a nature area which in my opinion is not that good. Overall I grew up in that Park and don't want to see it go to waste. Even if you want to just lay down on the grass and let your kid run wild

Kingsway Gardens

Scunthorpe DN15 7HU, UK

Absolutely beautiful. We took my daughter on a sunny day because other parks were really full and too busy and Kingsway was quiet and peaceful and the gardens were being looked after. It was just gorgeous.

Beautifully kept by its dedicated gardeners. Well done lads.

Normanby Hall Country Park

Normanby Rd, Normanby, Scunthorpe DN15, UK – 01724 720588

Generally I love it here, well worth buying the season ticket (by the second visit we save money) loads of open space to enjoy. This year they have demolished the play area before the new ones are ready and opened a high wire area which seems to be the new marketing plan. The new play areas are separate for older and younger children, great in theory for stopping little ones getting bumped (not that this was ever an issue), logistically for a parent of 3 I'm not sure how this will work as they spread across the ages of the 2 areas.

This is a local favourite we have been going for years. Over this time it has got better and better. Lots to do for all the family. From looking around the hall itself, the farming museum, the walled garden. Plus a splash park and the brand new play park only opened last week. Go Ape also opened this spring which has an additional fee. They park itself has lovely wooded walks where you can find the play house and furniture, the story chair and new wooden features for the children to play on. There is a courtyard cafe which sells reasonable price food and drinks all year round.

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around Whitton or Lincolnshire. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.
