“Not very dog friendly”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

It claims to be dog friendly, but when you go to the cafe, dogs aren't allowed in. I commented on this and the lady serving was very rude saying they were dog friendly as they had dog parking out the front. This was in the sun with absolutely no shade whatsoever and it was over 24 degrees outside. I quickly rushed in and the queue was 3 deep with no one there to serve, so all I grabbed was a bottle of water as I didn't want my dog to suffer.

The rest of the park was lovely, but only somewhat dog friendly - although no bins for doggie mess and no taps for water.

“Good play area!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

I remembered coming here as a child my self, so decided to take my own. He did really enjoy it although scared of most the animals when up close. The animals are in a really bad way and should not be kept there. The cafe was not nice at all. But the playground was amazing with every thing children want in one. Even diggers in the sand.

“Fun, friendly place to take children”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Small farm where children could feed some of the animals. Very large area of grass where you could picnic and play footie or games, even BBQ if so desired. Excellent park for children, large variety of playground activities, only issue was that the zip wire was broken. Small cafe for food & drink, also Pitch & Putt at a good rate. If in Sheffield again, would definitely take the children back.

“Family Friendly Farm”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

This park is great for the whole family, a wide variety of animals to see and interact with.

The parking is not too expensive and access to the farm is free.
A lovely day out with a big park to walk around.

The park is lovely and great for children of all children.

“Animals look sad”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I think people this this as it free, but that is because its council run therefore they don't put a lot of money into it, which you can see this by the poor quality pens and the state they were kept in, it was a real shame. Saying that however the cows not on the farmyard and in the big fields looked lovely and that area was a nice walk.
