Really nice little spot to sit down for a few minutes whilst the world goes by. The nearby fountains will keep the children entertained too.

Shabby and downmarket, dirty, full of empty bottles. Homeless people sleeping all over the place, generally depressing.

The Peace Garden is a nice place in winter even it is cold and is a great place in summer with all the coffee shops, restaurants and take away places around. It is great for a rest after shopping in Sheffield centre and The Moor markets

Not a large area but the water features are very interesting. Seating available and a good place to eat packed lunches. There are steps but these are very well lit at night.

Love walking through the Peace Gardens or sitting and watching the world go by. There is always something to see from the Christmas Market in Nov/Dec to the children having fun in the fountains in summer and the International Food Market which is amazing.

Unless you have a complete disregard for your clothing/already wearing green. Good place to soak in a good mix of scenery from the tall buildings to the fountains.

This used to be a social spot for me when I was younger but at my age now I appreciate it more just to sit and relax. Love the fountains too.
