A SHEFFIELD park became an open air gallery - with residents from the surrounding area invited to show off their artistic talents.

Drawings and paintings were hung up on washing lines or attached to fences around Lynwood Gardens, in Broomhall, adding human creations to the budding trees and flowers.

Work on display at the Broomhall Celebration event had been made by more than 130 local people over the last year, who had attended workshops and classes run by organisation Art in the Park.

The residents had also come up with new designs for benches, notice boards and signs around the park.

Copper leaves have been added to benches in the gardens, designed by local schoolchildren.

As well as showing off local people’s work, the day involved an Arts Walk, led by poet Noel Williams, where people were taken on a guided walk through Broomhall to inspire them to draw, sketch and write poetry.

There was also a treasure hunt, and food and drink was on offer.
