Friends of Whirlow Brook Park (FoWP)

Whirlow Brook Park is a district park in the south-west of Sheffield. The Park is open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is accessible by car from the crescent on the A625 in Sheffield where Ecclesall Road South becomes Hathersage Road. Friends of Whirlow Brook Park (FoWP) was initiated in February 2021 and constituted in September 2021. It is one of over 80 Friends groups who look after parks and open spaces in Sheffield, with the encouragement and support of the landowner, Sheffield City Council Parks and Countryside Department. It was conceived by members of Sheffield u3A who have restored the area around the rock garden and upper pond, but who recognised that the remainder of the 39 acre park was becoming increasingly neglected due to lack of resources. FoWP is a separate entity, with its own constitution, management committee and group of volunteers. It will work and operate in close cooperation with colleagues in Parks and Countryside. Our primary aim is to help restore and develop the Park for the benefit of the people of Sheffield in order to maintain its natural beauty and atmosphere of tranquility which contribute to a sense of well-being in all who visit. Volunteers We have about 25 regular volunteers who work in the Park on Saturdays (once a month), Mondays (bimonthly) and Wednesdays (bimonthly).
