One of Sheffield’s most popular free family attractions, Graves Park Animal Farm, is set to reopen on Monday 27 July.
Opening just in time for the school summer holidays, families across the city can start planning their visit with a new booking system, allowing up to 50 people to visit during 45 minute sessions, between 10am-4pm, 7 days per week.
Safety measures have been introduced to keep staff and visitors safe, including limiting the number of visitors, use of hand washing and sanitising stations, cleaning after every session and reduced activities available.
Entry will still be completely free to visitors.
Councillor Mary Lea, Cabinet Member for Culture, Parks and Leisure at Sheffield City Council, said: “We’ve been working really hard to reopen facilities within our parks and I’m delighted that we can allow visitors to return to our fantastic animal farm.
“We’re confident that the measures we have put in place are manageable and will allow families to enjoy a fun and educational experience, just in time for the school summer holidays.
“We’re proud that even with all these extra measures in place we can still offer this wonderful attraction for free. Donations, no matter how much, contribute to the running of the farm and the welfare of our animals, so if visitors can spare a small amount this makes a huge difference.
“Our booking system is now live and we expect demand will be high. I would encourage families to start planning early to avoid disappointment and hope you all have lots of fun.”
