Weston Park was the first municipal park in the city and was developed from the grounds of Weston Hall.

Robert Marnock was commissioned to design the park in 1873 and opened to the public on Monday 6 September 1875 with the following days Sheffield Daily Telegraph saying: “The weather was fine. The Park looked in its gayest Summer dress. The walks were freshly graveled, the flower beds were trim and well ordered.”

In 1882 the Weston Park Weather station was erected. It is the official climatological station for Sheffield and one of the oldest weather stations in the country.

In 1905 the park was visited by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra during a visit to Sheffield in which they also opened the nearby University of Sheffield. Please join us for Treetop House’s Annual Sponsored Walk around Weston Park on Sunday 1 July from 11am-2pm..

This will be a fun day out for the whole family. The route will be around the park and if the sun is shining there will be games and face painting for the children.

So pack your picnic, your Sick Children’s Trust t-shirt and a smile and come along and raise some money for The Sick Children’s Trust’s Treetop House and its new ‘Home from Home’ at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

There is entry fee and no minimum sponsorship so please just stop by and say hello.
