Highfield Adventure Playground is a popular play space adjacent to Mount Pleasant Park in Sharrow.





Children and young people love the playground because of its interesting and exciting spaces and play equipment, including sand play, tunnel side, maypole swing and water pump. It is also popular with parents who see it as a safe place, staffed by skilled play workers, with toilet facilities and refreshments available.In term time it is open 3 afternoons a week and it’s free!

Staff provide a range of activities for children of all ages including crafts, cooking and games. Over 8 year olds’ can play in the playground without parental supervision.

During the 2017 summer holidays Highfield Adventure Playground was open 5 days a week, the playground received over 2000 visitors and hosted Tea at Adventures, a programme in conjunction with The Real Junk Food Project which focused on nutritional meals for children. This programme will be running again this summer from 25th July 18.

There is no charge to come to the playground and low cost refreshments are available.

We endeavour to open during the school holidays, however days and times are confirmed nearer the date as holiday opening hours are dependant on funding, please check our website and Facebook page for details.

We were invited by Sheffield City Council to become part of a city wide project to provide free or affordable community meals for families in the summer holidays. We called our project Tea at Adventures, and in partnership with the Real Junk Food Project, our staff and parent volunteers fed over 560 people by providing free, nutritious, communal meals for children and families. Everyone was invited to get involved in preparing meals and contributing recipes, or just come and eat with us. The project continued throughout half-term and was even more popular, highlighting a real area of need in the area, something SCF and Highfield Adventure Playground are striving to address!
