There’s some beautiful ancient woodlands in Norfolk Heritage Park and in autumn they’re bursting full of colour. It’s not a long walk through the woods and it’s pushchair friendly, plus there is a nice cafe, toilet facilities and adventure playground in the park so you can make a day of it.
Norfolk Heritage Park in autumn
There are a few different entrances into Norfolk Heritage Park and to get the best walk along this tree-lined avenue, I recommend parking off street near Granville Road entrance. The car park is further up near the cafe/playground so you would miss this part.
All of the park is flat and pushchair friendly. There are some gentle hills but nothing huge and the stroll through the ancient woods is flat.
Collecting lots of different coloured leaves is a fun little activity to do with kids, or without! Comparing the colours and textures together is wonderful to see and you can create a little autumn rainbow.
If it gets a little chilly, head to the “Centre In The Park” which has a cafe. If you take your own food you can eat it indoors inside the Centre In The Park on benches. There’s a fantastic new adventure playground, too, so wrap up warm!
Back to the lovely autumn woods in Norfolk Heritage Park…
The paths in the woods are very wide, so there’s lots of room for running around.
How to get there? Tram to Arbourthorne Road, or if you’d prefer to walk up the tree lined avenue off Granville Road get the tram to Sheffield College. It’s a short walk uphill from there.
