Details

Rosehill Victoria Park is one of the borough's older urban parks opened in 1901 in honour of Queen Victoria's 1897 diamond jubilee.

Prior to this the park was laid out as private grounds to Rosehill Hall and still retains some historic features from this era. You can still see part of the heated wall which surrounded the garden as well as the ripples in the main parkland area which possibly indicate early farming methods.

Rosehill Hall, built around 1830 by the Firth family, served as a lavish home and stands as a proud feature of the park. It is now fully refurbished and is home to the Rawmarsh and Parkgate Partnership Ltd. and is used as a community resource.

At almost 14 hectares, the park is a perfect refuge from today's busy lifestyle and provides a relaxing atmosphere for visitors. With the support of the Friends of Rosehill Park there has been much investment in recent years with the addition of a multi use games area (MUGA), improved footpaths and seating, provision of CCTV cameras and improvement of the bowling area and surrounding fencing. The park also now boasts a newly refurbished novelty golf course and fantastic tree sculpture designed by local young people and showing images of Rotherham's heritage and wildlife.
The facilites include: Tennis Courts, Bowling Greens, Children's Play Equipment, Orienteering Course, Pavilion, Trim Trail, Model Railway and Steps to Health Route.
