Sheffield council wants your opinion on Ponderosa refurbishment

Sheffield city council has opened a public consultation on the plans for the refurbishment of Ponderosa park. 

The refurbishment is part of a wider project to improve the quality of outdoor spaces in Sheffield, with Brightside, Hillsborough, Highfields, Richmond and Norfolk Heritage Park among the sites also part of the public health funded project.

Councillor Mary Lea, cabinet member for culture, parks and leisure said: “Ponderosa is a wonderful park that is important to both people who live nearby and to visitors to the great festivals and events held there. Our aim is to refurbish Ponderosa so it is a space available to everyone who wants to enjoy it, whether that is for meeting friends, a day out with the family or staying active.

“The improvements to Ponderosa are part of our project to upgrade parks across the city; making them places where people can enjoy the outdoors, making the most of the brilliant green spaces Sheffield has to offer.”

The Ponderosa was for a spell home to Tramlines (pictured) until the festival moved to Hillsborough Park in 2018.

The consultation will be open until Wednesday (24 October) and is available online here
