Forge Dam Park

Forge Dam Park

Forge Dam Park is located a few miles drive from the centre of Sheffield, South Yorkshire. It is a lovely place to take a walk alongside the stream and there is a lovely cafe located next to the dam.

What can you do at Forge Dam Park?

The park is around 23 hectares in size and it is on the site of the Old Mayhouse Farm and Forge Dam. It was acquired by a charitable trust in 1938. The dam was originally made to divert water to a series of nearby grinding mills.

The main entrance to the park is on Ivy Cottage Lane and there is some informal parking along the road. There is a small playground and kids will love exploring this picturesque park. There are some lovely stepping stones across the water and if it’s warm enough your kids may want a splash about in the water. You might want to take some duck food as there are usually quite a few around.

There is a 2-mile walk from Forge Dam to Endcliffe Park. It’s a straight walk and you will pass a waterfall, bridges, stepping stones and a Shepherds Wheel Museum.
