No sweat – literally. Try one of these spots for swimming or paddling in and around Sheffield.
1. Sheffield Peace Gardens
Slap bang in the city centre, the fountains in the Sheffield Peace gardens are the perfect place for kids to play on a hot day. Pack a picnic and watch them run through the water jets while you shelter from the sun.

3. Hathersage Outdoor Pool
Head a little way out of Sheffield into the Peaks for a gorgeous outdoor pool for all the family - Hathersage. It's heated and open frequently throughout summer. There's also a play park nearby.
4. Cable Waterski and Aqua Park
For older kids - and grown-ups - looking for a little more adventure, Sheffield's Cable Waterski and Aqua Park is a great spot for water sports and trying your hand at a tough but fun inflatable course on the water.
