we might be able to make it
can I gatecrash a bit too if anyone's around right now and ask where are good outdoors places with not tooooooo many kids to take toddlers to in Sheffield? We're going down to my sisters quite a few times this next few months and she hasn't got kids, so doesn't have a clue. She lives in S7 (don't know if that means anything to you?) TIA

Wow that was fast!

Yes please, and Friday 29th good for me too (or indeed any Friday in July except 22nd)

Hulababy Mon 06-Jun-05 22:13:18

I could probably do that yes - is that when half term starts? I

How about saying July or August? I might not be able to do first Friday in August though - Dh has week off.

Hulababy Mon 06-Jun-05 22:15:24

morocco - what kind of thing are you looking for?

If you just want open grassy places - Botanical Gardens, off Ecclesall Road

Park - Endcliffe park, top of Ecclesall Road. Lots of grass, children's park, bouncy castle.

Graves Park - has a little fam there - free. has car park too.

City Farm - lots of animals to see and a lovely cafe serving home cooked food. Not much running around space though.

Hulababy Mon 06-Jun-05 22:15:43

Oh yes, probably can't do 22nd either - DH's birthday!

jamiesam Mon 06-Jun-05 22:21:12

Morocco - not sure what you mean about not too many kids?

I'm in S7 - all the parks round here worth going to are driving distance, highly recommend Graves Park (big park and animal park/farm), or Millhouses Park (linear park runs alongside stream and railway line) or Endcliffe/Bingham Park (duck ponds and nice linear walk) - all have nice playgrounds and cafes. In S7, Chelsea Park playground is to be opened this weekend! Not worth a big trip to though! Small neighbourhood park whereas others are more 'district' parks...

jamiesam Mon 06-Jun-05 22:23:12

Far too slow there!

By the way, I keep meaning to visit the City Farm too, as I'm told they sell lovely plants - might tempt your sister?

morocco Mon 06-Jun-05 22:32:13

this is fab already - we're going there tomorrow too so we'll check one of them out - maybe city farm? is it cheap? sis will love the flowers idea
(the not too many kids things is just one of my little paranoias at the moment as ds is a bit ill and I'm overly protective mummy about him catching anything, this will be one of my first ventures out for a while)

Hulababy Tue 07-Jun-05 18:49:13

City farm is free

Ah, just seen - it was today. Where did you go? Have fun? Weather was great for it!

WedgiesMum Tue 07-Jun-05 20:30:02

Can't do any of the Friday's in July (as the one in the hols I'll be in Blackpool with roisin - hurrah!). Could do the 5th August or 26th though???

Hulababy Wed 08-Jun-05 21:23:00

I could do 5th August too.

jamiesam Wed 08-Jun-05 22:43:22

Aah, I'll have to duck out if it's the 5th August. Maybe next time.

morocco Wed 08-Jun-05 22:53:34

city farm was great, really good fun, we got to stroke the baby rabbits. ds fell over and bled everywhere and they gave us a free icecream to stem the huge amount of blood too. bonus.

Hulababy Thu 09-Jun-05 13:35:52

Oh no don't do that jamiesam - this thread was allyou idea! Which dates can you do, and we will see if we can do somethiung then. I can do most Fridays.

Hulababy Thu 09-Jun-05 13:36:22

Glad you enjoyed the farm morrocco. Hope the ice cream helped with your DS's recovery.

Easy Thu 09-Jun-05 13:38:33

Are we too old to join in? DS will be 6 soon.

Hulababy Thu 09-Jun-05 13:39:26

Course your not! More the merrier Easy, and it would be really nice to see you and your lovely DS again.

Easy Thu 09-Jun-05 13:44:58


jamiesam Thu 09-Jun-05 14:11:00

Hula - thanks

At the moment, I could do any Thursday or Friday in August except Fri 5th and Thurs 11th. Could also do w/e of 20/21 or 27/28 August. Or any Friday in July except 22nd. Wonder if we need one of your long lists of dates Hula?
