Grand opening - Sheffield South St Park!
September 16, 2011
Saturday 17th September saw the grand opening of the Sheaf Valley Park Amphitheatre and Arboretum.
The opening ceremony featured the local MP Paul Blomfield, the Mayor of Sheffield Sylvia Dunkley and Sheffield Theatres Chief Executive Dan Bates, as well as South Yorkshire Forest Partnership Director Tom Wild.
Here’s the flyer for the event:
The launch was a great success and lots of fun was had by all. Particular highlights were the local schoolchildren dance groups and majorettes bands, and the great job done by master of ceremonies Billy Martin.
We would like to take this opportunity to give our big thanks to the funders and partners, Interreg IVB North Sea Region (our Making Places Profitable project), Sheffield City Council and of course, the Friends of Sheaf Valley Park.
The site occupies a commanding position above Midland Station and overlooking the city centre, and the scheme involves inspirational urban design and landscaping from the team responsible for designing the jewels in Sheffield’s Heart of the City programme, such as the Peace Gardens.
We wish everyone involved in the launch and the project all the very best, and look forward to seeing its success continue.
