Description

Glen Howe Park is located just to the west of Wharncliffe Side, which lies 10 kilometres north-west of the centre of Sheffield, between Oughtibridge and Stocksbridge. The park is some 19 acres in extent and has long been renowned as an exceptionally attractive location. Occupying the steep-sided valley of the Tinker Brook, this is an absolutely delightful spot; quiet shady woodland, gently tumbling streams, some outstanding trees and shrubs and stunning views across the Don Valley to Wharncliffe Woods. The park is nothing like as well known today as it was formerly and it has an intriguing air of a faded former glory. There are also some excellent stone sculptures and other features to discover.

The Park was given to the people of Wharncliffe Side in 1917 by local paper manufacturer Joseph Dixon and his friend John Mills, who had previously purchased the area for £1000, for use as a pleasure garden. Before this the area was previously known as Haw, How, Hall or Howe Wood. It was in 1974 that ownership of the park passed to Sheffield City Council as a result of local government reorganisation.
