Welcome to Friends of Chapeltown Park website
Welcome to Chapeltown Park. We are located 5.6 miles north of Sheffield’s city centre. We have two access points – 1 via Cowley Lane and the other on Station Road (which has a little car park). We have a range of facilities and features that is available for all:
- Playground for children.
- An outdoor gym.
- Ancient woodland area.
- War memorial.
- Bandstand (where we also hold our monthly events).
- Woodland seating area in our Butterfly Glade.
So why not come and visit our park whether it’s to do a brisk walk, use our gym facilities, have a picnic or just sit and enjoy the views across the park. We are easily accessible by public transport and have a train stop with links from Sheffield, Barnsley and Leeds.
We are pleased that we have made a huge difference to Chapeltown Park since we were formed in 2003. We have obtained the majority of the funding for our lovely natural play area for younger children and are now working on funding for older young people. Lots of research has shown that they really, really would like a SKATE PARK so we have been busy fundraising for this. We currently have just over £15,000 and have quotes in the region of £100,000. Ecclesfield School, Nick & Ash from the Skateboard School and Skateboard England are working with us to form a USER GROUP, a Facebook page and helping us to apply for funding to make this project viable. If you know anyone who would like to join the user group, please let us know.
This is an illustration of one of the quotations we have but can be changed as required. We’ve now been trying to raise money for the SKATE PARK for about 3 years and it would be fantastic if this could be done. The user group and Friends group will make sure that it is looked after once it has been built.
