Norfolk Park[edit]

Norfolk Park (grid reference SK365859) is a residential area of Sheffield that surrounds Norfolk Heritage Park close to the city centre. The area has been undergoing regeneration over the last few years with the demolition of the former high rise flats in favour of low rise housing with mixed private and local housing association ownership. A privately operated student village is located in the area next to the park.[2]

Norfolk Park is on the blue and purple tram lines with three stops, Park Grange Croft, Park Grange Road and Arbourthorne Road.
