We are a very sociable group with a wide range of age. The park is as flat as anywhere in Sheffield can be, and the surfaces are good so this walk is wheels-friendly. Approximately two-thirds of the way round the park we generally pause for a rest in the Walled Garden where there is plentiful seating around the centre point, and lovely views of the gardens. After the walk everyone returns to Hillsborough Arena for refreshments. The Arena staff make us extremely welcome and some walkers occaisionally stay on foir lunch.
