Well planed and interesting

Not a large area but the water features are very interesting. Seating available and a good place to eat packed lunches. There are steps but these are very well lit at night.

Love walking through the Peace Gardens or sitting and watching the world go by. There is always something to see from the Christmas Market in Nov/Dec to the children having fun in the fountains in summer and the International Food Market which is amazing.

Unless you have a complete disregard for your clothing/already wearing green. Good place to soak in a good mix of scenery from the tall buildings to the fountains.

This used to be a social spot for me when I was younger but at my age now I appreciate it more just to sit and relax. Love the fountains too.

The peace gardens looked beautiful as we walked through them yesterday. The fountains are a sodcual feature and makes the place look extra special. There was a wedding party having photo taken. There's plenty of cafes and bars to get refreshments very nearby but the area looks is suitable for picnic in the summer. I'd recommend a visit.

Our son decided to show us the sights of Sheffield when we visited last weekend and this included the very pretty peace Gardens. It was early evening so the area was illuminated and the fountains were working. Two wedding parties were having their photo taken with the fountains in the background. Very pretty.

Absolutely beautiful place, lovely to visit when in need of relaxation or just to escape for a bit. I have taken many family members there when they come to visit me at university, and they have all said how nice it is. Perfect for reflection and thinking.
