“Lovely green space in Sheffield”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Lovely area to sit when the weather is nice. Near to shops and cafes so it's nice to sit there and have a small snack and a drink. Only problem is can be really busy and full of kids when it's nice, sunny weather.

“relaxing”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

first time I have been into the Peace Gardens, I went for a evening stroll with my partner as he said it was the best time to go not many people there and it was just nice to sit relaxing, listening to the water in the background also watching the odd few passer by's coming from pubs. Beautiful and clean

“Does not live upto its nane in anyway”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

I struggle to see how people rate this as good or excellent. This is certainly not a garden except the smallest bit of grassing. Peace is another questionable statement. On a nice day it gets very packed and there is lots of screaming children so hardly peaceful.

If it is quite you get the constant sound of the many empty buses going by. This place certainly doesn't live up to it's name in any format and is not worthy of s special visit.

Go a few miles out of Sheffield and then you will find somewhere really peaceful in gods natural garden.

In addition Sheffield council have killed the town centre off which is now full of empty shops of flattened land with no big name stores.

“A must visit”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

A must visit almost every time we visit the city centre just for our son (who was 2 the first time) to run around the fountains or sit and have something to eat. Great little feature of the city centre.
