visitors at Sheffield Park lake


Father’s Day falls in the first weekend of our annual Waterlily Festival which returns this summer from 18 June to 17 July 2022, daily 10am-5pm.

Sheffield Park's picturesque lakes burst into life in June and July. To celebrate this natural spectacle, the Waterlily Festival returns, accompanied by a programme of bookable arts events including photography, watercolour and sketching workshops – perfect as a Father’s Day gift.  Wander the shores of the lakes, adorned by thousands of waterlily plants or get an even closer view on the ever-popular floating pontoon. As you admire the seven different species, in shades varying from buttery yellow to deep pink, look out for giant flowers and dragonflies created by community-led artists, Same Sky and So Sussex who have enlisted the help of young local artists in their exhibits; displays and fun detailswill keep younger visitors entertained too. Normal admission applies. Pre-booking required for our Waterlily Festival Workshops only.
