Hillsborough Park Improvements Update - 19th January

Since Hillsborough Park became the home of Tramlines in 2018, we have worked with Sheffield City Council on improvements to the park and our commitment to this important community space continues. We are pleased to report the latest completed and ongoing work below.




  • The new pathway, running from the centre of the park down past the Library, was completed in November. 
  • A new lighting network has been installed from the crossover point, along the new path and south to join up with Middlewood Road, helping keep the park well lit and safe at night. 
  • At the crossover point in the centre of the park, an existing blocked drain has been cleared and new drain network added, creating overflow capacity to help prevent flooding. 
  • At the south of the park, new land drains have been installed to improve a known boggy area along the pathway parallel to HASA’s playing fields.




  • Reinstalling benches and bins alongside the new pathway and the path that runs parallel to the pond.
  • Landscaping works along the new pathway will begin soon to repair the edges of grass.
  • Installation of a new drain connecting to the network above, where a spring has recently appeared in the playground by the ‘snake’s head’.
  • There are drainage issues at two points on the grass in front of the car park. Considerations are being made on how to fix the issue and a further update will be provided once confirmed. 
  • Due to poor weather, we have not yet aerated the newly cultivated ground in the main field. This will be completed as soon as conditions allow.
  • Continuing top up repairs on any areas of the grounds that need attention in the Spring.




Applications will close on 1st March 2024. Please see the map detailing the ticketing catchment area:
