A small but well-used urban reserve

Despite its small size and unlovely location (behind a petrol station at the end of Ecclesall Road) Sunnybank is the Wildlife Trust for Sheffield and Rotherham's most visited nature reserve. It is a hugely valuable green space where people can find trees and tranquillity, away from the noise of the ring road. 

Sunnybank is particularly important for wildlife as it is the end of a green corridor which stretches through the leafy streets of Broomhill, to the Botanical Gardens and out through Endcliffe Park and Whitely Woods to the Peak District.
