Parkwood Springs is a 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, kestrels hover, and deer have been seen. There are spectacular views over the city centre, the suburbs and the distant moors of the Peak District. The word ‘spring’ in ‘Parkwood Springs’ has nothing to do with water but lots to do with the old woodlands. You also pass alongside the River Don and visit Wardsend, an abandoned Victorian cemetery. More information is available from the Friends of Parkwood Springs and the Friends of Wardsend Cemetery.
