Jericho Street

Jericho Street green space can be found off St Phillip’s Road in the Upperthorpe area of Sheffield. It is a relatively small site with an area set aside as a playground along with some small green spaces with a few mature trees and shrubs. The space is entirely surrounded by residential housing.

The current play facilities consist of a pyramid climbing frame and a small wooden Wendy House offering a very limited play experience. Consequently the space is largely unused other than to access the surrounding housing.

Despite its size, there is a good deal of potential to improve the play opportunities on this site using the sloping landform and by incorporating the trees into new play equipment. Opportunities for wildlife can also be enhanced by introducing new planting schemes around the site.
