Today, the Rose Garden Cafe has been listed on South Yorkshire’s Heritage listing as it contributes to the distinctiveness and history of South Yorkshire.
This was applied for following an outpouring of support for the café from local residents after it was forced to close last year due to safety concerns.
Commenting on this news, Louise Haigh MP for Sheffield Heeley, said:
“It is fantastic news for Graves Park and all those who love and use the park that the Rose Garden Café has been listed on South Yorkshire’s Heritage listing.
“This will give this much-loved building more protection in the future and will hopefully mean it can be protected for years to come.
“It’s thanks to the campaigning of the Friends of Graves Park, the café itself and thousands of local residents that this status has been granted.”
