Sheffield

FieldLab Sheffield is situated in Lowfield Open Space, a 2-hectare site which previously was a low-quality under-utilised green space, but has just undergone a major transformation. The refurbished park will provide innovative outdoor exercise opportunities. Lowfield is situated in the Sharrow area, known for its high proportion of young people, culturally diverse population and high concentration of disadvantaged families. The new Lowfield Park is fully open, together with the Lowfield U-Mix Centre. The FieldLab includes an artificial grass pitch (AGP) for football, adventurous play equipment, a community garden and an open grassed area with seating. Also lots of improvements to the adjoining Lowfield Primary School have been made such as a dance studio, a multi gym, an activity hall and a performing arts space.
